Spark Creativity

Once you learn how it works, the sky is the limit. ThinkerToy: Shapes will help you break down an object, image or concept into simple geometric shapes to create a picture, thus training your visual perception. Once you start with one idea, it can easily lead to the next as you've been prompted to think in themes or categories by the examples. Challenge yourself as you use shapes to layer and create the desired silhouette for your picture. Play with size and color to give your designs extra creative flair.
