"Toobers & Zots" and the Art of Play

Preschool toys in the hands of high school students? - Yep!  We got in touch with our inner child this week playing  Toobers and Zots.  They seem to intrinsically inspire sculptural designs with a slightly surrealistic twist.  Relatively simple shapes to draw, my students learned how to make quick drawings and thumbnail sketches using different configurations.  Picasso once said, "Every child is an artist.  The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up."   I think I need to raid my children's old toybox more often.
