Of all the shapes in the art, the circle is amongst the most important and forms the basis of a number of drawings and designs. Learning the parts is important, so let’s take a closer look!

## Step-By-Step Images and Instructions

### 1.

Start with a pencil and a ruler, and draw three horizontal lines across the page, around an inch apart.

### 2.

Now, grab a drawing compass, and draw small circles across these lines. Add three to the top and middle, and two to the bottom.

### 3.

Grab a black pen, and outline the top two left circles, the outside ones on the middle line, and the two at the bottom.

### 4.

Fill in the circle in the center on the second line, leaving a small gap in the bottom quarter. Complete this circle with a red pen, and then outline the remaining circles with the red pen.

### 5.

Grab a ruler, and draw a series of lines across each of the circles with the red pen, as well as a circle on the edge of the center right circle.

### 6.

Take an eraser, and remove the pencil lines inside the circles.

### 7.

Now, use a red pen to shade the shapes in the bottom circles.

### 8.

Grab a black fineliner pen and add labels to the correct circles. From the top left corner: Radius, Diameter, Circumference, Chord, Arc, Tangent, Segment, Sector.

### 9.

Use an eraser to remove the remaining pencil lines.

And there we have it – the foundation of art, math and geometry, and potentially the start of a wonderful interest in circles and shapes.
