In this lesson, we'll learn how to draw some curves in the form of circles. Specifically, we'll be looking at the radius and diameter method of creating circles. On my screen, I've got an example of a circle. Let's take a second and talk just a little bit about how circles are measured. A circle's radius is the distance from the center point to the edge of the circle, and a circle's diameter is the distance from one side of the circle to the other, where that measurement passes through point.

It's essentially the width of the circle. To draw a circle, I'll move up to the Draw panel in the Ribbon and click the Circle icon. I will then click to define the center point of my circle.
