This study is of a historical nature, representing an attempt to reconstruct the educational work of several outstanding Polish creators of artistic and applied graphics. It is assumed that the teaching work characterized by an artist's attitude to the student in the Master-disciple relationship, supported by the example of the Master's own work, results in the development of the student's creative aptitude. The article presents, of necessity in a fragmentary manner, the teaching work (and
more » ... nts' opinions) of artists, who -in respecting their students' individuality and creating an atmosphere of benevolence and esteem -supported the development of their talents. The profiles of selected artists are presented, including: W. Skoczylas, E. Bartłomiejczyk, H. Tomaszewski and J. Szancer in an attempt to demonstrate that these outstanding artistic personalities, were, as it turns out, also eminent teachers in the Polish artistic education movement of the twentieth century.
