The point of this program is to get you to create your first graphics program. You should draw three rectangles (one red, one blue and one yellow) and in the center of the screen write "Programming is Awesome." You can make your rectangles of any size and put them in any position--as long as they are visible. Here is what our program looked like.
Very simple geometric art sometimes sells for huge amounts of money. For example, this painting, Composition II by Piet Mondrian, sold for $40 million:
Your first task is to add three rectangles, one red, one blue, one yellow. You don't have to create the image above. You can put your rectangles anywhere on the screen that you want. If you sell your picture for millions of dollars... remember your teachers :). If you feel like adding more rectangles, that's cool. Just make sure to finish milestone #2 first.
Create and add some text in the center of the screen. You can get the width and height of the screen with the following commands using your
You can create some text on the screen using
label = canvas.create_text(x, y, text)
The x and y coordinates you provide will be set to be the center of the drawn text.
If you want your text to look more snazzy, you can change its font using your
canvas.set_font(label, "Courier", 50)
That's all! If you finish early, feel free to add to your picture. If you like ovals... you can add ovals too.
