The work presented in this paper is part of the research project “Wisdom Transfer” (WT). The WT project stems from the evidence that there is insufficient inscription and use of individual knowledge and experience of ageing and retired art and design professors and researchers, in Portugal. In this project there is a great cultural approach from which emerges a high responsibility towards the current artistic education system, in which teachers and students are involved. Through the drawing of an infographics, it is intended that the readers - especially current art and design students - have access to information about the education system of that time. In this article, we will first present the research project “Wisdom Transfer”; we will develop a literature review; and we will present the study of the infographic solution we are developing for this project.
