War Art

April 12 – May 02, 1942

 

In a country at war, education and vocational training are faced with the problem of achieving maximum results in minimum time without sacrificing the objectives of general education. The School of Design in Chicago- because of its past educational policy- has readily adapted its program to the requirements of the present emergency.

Its class room and workshop training, the coordination of hand and brain, helps to make the individual resourceful and inventive. He knows from direct experience how to handle the tools of the craftsman, the basic machines of industry and the problems of contemporary science and art. With such an integrated training of art, science and technology, the students of the school were able to attack civilian and military tasks with courage, achieving surprising results, many of which may have good possibilities.
