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.
