Since World War II the artist, as student and teacher, has become the New Man on Campus. To learn why, National Educational Television asked WGBH to visit Yale University, to watch student and faculty in the School of Art and Architecture at work.
The first program demonstrates in words and action the relationship between artist and teacher. The second program studies the art teacher, specifically. The third program looks at the work of the graphic artist, from simple letter patterns to intricate trademarks and photo essays. The fourth program takes a look at the young architect in training.
