Turtle Graphics come from Logo, but Turtle Art is written in Python. However, you can save any Turtle Art program in Logo, and run it in Brian Harvey's UCBLogo. This allows another perspective on Turtle Art blocks, giving fine details in some cases that might not be obvious from experiment. So we can start to teach Logo to students who have even modest proficiency in Turtle Art, by constructing TA programs and saving as Logo, and then gradually moving to composing Logo with the TA code as examples. Let's see how that might work.
