Series Description

Broadcast Feb. 7 and 14, 1966 and August 1 and 8, 1966

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.

See February and August 1966 Program Guides for descriptions. Series release date: 2/7/1966

Program Description

At the Yale School of Art and Architecture talented students are seen at work, under the critical eye of Design department Chairman Alvin Eiseman and Paul Rand, one of the nation’s leading designers who teaches at Yale once a week.

Recorded by Channel 2, the program illustrates what graphic design is, and what tools the designer uses to achieve his purpose as cameras visit actual classes to watch teachers and student in action.

Russell Morash directed.
