Did you find out what a compass rose is and want to draw? In this tutorial, I will show you how to draw a compass rose. Let’s get started!
In this tutorial, you will learn how to draw a compass rose. This is a very necessary item because the compass helps to navigate the terrain. A compass is needed on a hike, on an expedition, or in other cases when you need to cover long distances.
The compass has a simple structure. This is a disc that has arrows that point to parts of the world. One of the arrows constantly points to the north, so you can easily navigate in any area.
You must be extremely careful to complete this lesson. Here you need to make clear, straight lines. You can use tools at hand, such as a ruler and compasses, but we recommend that you do all the work yourself. In this way, you will develop your skills in drawing straight lines.
Be sure to keep the sides of the compass symmetrical throughout the lesson.
