Creative Assignment 1

Drawing using the turtle module.

Computers can be powerful tools for artists. Their ability to represent curves and lines precisely make them a useful to for graphic designers. In this assignment you will use the Turtle module as a computer aided design tool.


Create a Python program that uses the turtle module to draw a picture. The picture can be anything you want, but must do the following:

Here are some examples of drawings from last year's class that were impressive:

Turtle Graphics Yin Yang Symbol Turtle Graphics Green Lantern Symbol


Astounding drawings will receive extra credit. I will be the arbiter of whether a drawing is astounding, but as a general rule they should be more impressive than the above examples.


Your code should conform to the course’s code conventions and will be graded according the the course’s programming assignment rubric. Submit your program as a .py file on the course Inquire page before class on Friday September 10th.
