In this lesson we will learn how to use python to create graphics.
Computer graphics is a sub-field of computer science which studies methods for digitally synthesizing and manipulating visual content.
To create graphics we will have to import modules. Importing modules is a critical skill when learning Python. A module is a file containing a set of functions you want to include in your application.
The import statement is used to gain access to necessary modules. This allows for us to leverage the already written program in the module in our code. In this lesson we will use Turtle Graphics. Turtle Graphics is a module that allows us to tell a virtual turtle to move around the screen. We will code directions on how the turtle should move. His movements on the screen will form graphics!
