From WNET:

"These programs are designed to give a brief historical background of the various art expressions and their influences upon contemporary art. In addition, many media and techniques will be used and demonstrated creatively with the purpose of stimulating interest in art on the part of the TV audience to have it actively take tools and materials in hand to do an original piece of work. The series, produced by WQED, Pittsburgh, will cover a wide variety of art types: sculpture, various materials, paint, clay, and metal will serve as an orientation program for the adult. The producer and director is Sam Silberman."
