Society for the Psychology of Aesthetics, Creativity and the Arts

Division 10: Society for the Psychology of Aesthetics, Creativity and the Arts is committed to interdisciplinary scholarship, both theoretical and empirical, encompassing the visual arts, poetry, literature, music and dance. Broadly conceived, we study three interrelated topics: creativity (including developmental, motivational, affective and cognitive processes), the arts (including aesthetic content, form and function) and audience response to the arts (including preferences and judgments). To this end, we apply personality, clinical, cognitive, perceptual, cultural and postmodern psychologies to diverse artists, styles, and epochs. Division 10 offers a biannual publication; three annual awards, the Berlyne, Arnheim, and Farnsworth Awards; and discounts on five specialized journals.
