# The Rectangle

What the intervals look like. Let’s get down to it. This first block of intervals is performed at 60% of your maximum effort. You’ll be jogging around a complete rectangle in a clockwise direction for interval #1 and then a counter-clockwise direction for interval #2. A rectangle is also called an equiangular quadrilateral, since all of its angles are congruent. A rectangle is a parallelogram, but parallelogram is not a rectangle because in a rectangle each angle is a right angle, whereas it is not so in a parallelogram. That means that all the properties of a parallelogram can be also applied to rectangles.

The `Rectangle` class derives from the `Shape` class, and can be used to draw rectangles and squares. For information on the properties that the `Rectangle` class inherits from the `Shape` class, see Xamarin.Forms Shapes.

`Rectangle` defines the following properties:

• `RadiusX`, of type `double`, which is the x-axis radius that's used to round the corners of the rectangle. The default value of this property is 0.0.
• `RadiusY`, of type `double`, which is the y-axis radius that's used to round the corners of the rectangle. The default value of this property is 0.0.

These properties are backed by `BindableProperty` objects, which means that they can be targets of data bindings, and styled.

The `Rectangle` class sets the `Aspect` property, inherited from the `Shape` class, to `Stretch.Fill`. For more information about the `Aspect` property, see Stretch shapes.

## Create a Rectangle

To draw a rectangle, create a `Rectangle` object and sets its `WidthRequest` and `HeightRequest` properties. To paint the inside of the rectangle, set its `Fill` property to a `Brush`-derived object. To give the rectangle an outline, set its `Stroke` property to a `Brush`-derived object. The `StrokeThickness` property specifies the thickness of the rectangle outline. For more information about `Brush` objects, see Xamarin.Forms Brushes.

To give the rectangle rounded corners, set its `RadiusX` and `RadiusY` properties. These properties set the x-axis and y-axis radii that's used to round the corners of the rectangle.

To draw a square, make the `WidthRequest` and `HeightRequest` properties of the `Rectangle` object equal.

The following XAML example shows how to draw a filled rectangle:

In this example, a red filled rectangle with dimensions 150x50 (device-independent units) is drawn:

The following XAML example shows how to draw a filled rectangle, with rounded corners:

In this example, a blue filled rectangle with rounded corners is drawn:

### Watercolor Class

(Second Tuesday of each month when we are able to have classes in the Gallery again)
6 PM- 8 PM
This will be a great class for beginners or more experienced watercolor artists who want to loosen up.
These classes will be on the 2nd Tuesday of the Month. The cost will be \$30.00 per session and include all of your supplies.

### Events at Rectangle Gallery

Covid has put a damper on our events this year, but they will be back and better than ever.

### 4 Sided Polygons Name

When we are able, we will gather together (well-masked and practicing social distancing) to celebrate the Gallery artists and our guest artists on First Fridays and taking part in downtown and community events.

### Properties Of A Rectangle

Until that time we will be open until 6:30 pm every First Friday, open late for special downtown shopping events and for classes and art experiences.

I am a self-taught artist and have been painting for more than 30 years. I grew up in logging camps and this environment constantly exposed me to nature. This kindled my interest in landscapes, animals, florals and still life. I began by drawing on anything I could find and when finances allowed, I moved on to cheap watercolors and then finally to oil, acrylics and gouache.

One of my biggest influences in art came in the 80s when I was introduced to the teachings of Betty Edwards with the book “Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain”. The book taught me how to look at subjects for a different perspective and enabled me to improve my drawing and painting abilities.

### The Rectangle Controls

My styles are realism and impressionism. I paint mainly in oils and paint subjects that interest and excite me and subjects that the viewer can relate to, whether it be a landscape, floral arrangement, still life or portrait.
