Python Turtle – Draw the number 6

In this post we will be creating a Python script to draw the number ‘6’ using the turtle library. The turtle library enables us to a virtual canvas where one can draw an endless number of shapes and pictures. It is especially useful for beginners, children and programmers wanting to have some fun – The library is limited only by imagination.

See the snippet of Python code below where we use the Python turtle library to draw the number ‘6’.

import turtle

# create a Turtle object
t = turtle.Turtle()

# Move the turtle to the starting point
t.goto(100, 0)

# draw the number 6
t.forward(80), 160)

# Keep the window open until it is closed manually

The above would output the following to a canvas and leave it open.
