We form art. Art forms us.

 

The title of this book has a dual meaning. As humans form works of art, we are in turn formed by what we create. The art world constantly evolves, as today’s artists interpret, challenge, and ultimately create the world around them. The 11th edition of Prebles’ Artforms reflects this dynamic environment; it is one of the most exhaustive revisions in the book’s history. Three recent trends drive this edition: changing pedagogical needs, new scholarly research, and recent creativity by artists around the world.

 

MyArtsLab is an integral part of the Prebles' Artforms program. Engaging activities and assessment provide a teaching and learning system that helps students experience and interact with art. Key learning tools include ART 21 videos, Studio Technique videos, and our hallmark Closer Look tours of works of art.

 

Teaching and Learning Experience

This program will provide a better teaching and learning experience–for you and your students. It:

  • Personalizes Learning with MyArtsLab: The new MyArtsLab delivers proven results in helping students succeed, and provides engaging experiences that personalize learning.
  • Provides Thematic Exploration: Help students explore the reasons for creating art, the motivation for individual artists, and how art impacts its audience.
  • Emphasizes Critical Thinking: Chapter opening-Thinking Ahead questions encourage students to focus and think critically about the issues to come.
  • Focuses on Art Today: More than 175 new images reflect the author’s view that contemporary art provides the best path to art appreciation because of its currency and global nature.

Review:

“It is a very rich book. The author obviously has much knowledge and is impassioned about his text.”

-Marsha Anderson, North Lake College

 

“[The 'We Form Art' and 'Art Forms Us' boxes] are such a critical tool in trying to illustrate the relevance of art to those that are not art majors.”

-Paul Benero, Tarrant County College

 

“Ideas like catching Part openers, the brief timeline and the learning objectives help get the reader oriented toward deciphering what they are reading about. Including an iconic work along with more obscure ones helps students start in a comfort zone from which they will branch out.”

-Joan Bontempo, Hagerstwon Community College

 

“The content plan for the 11th edition truly takes another look at this excellent textbook with the goal of responding even more effectively to the needs of 21st century teachers and learners.”

-Timothy Jones, Oklahoma City Community College/ University of Oklahoma
