Hello again with another newbie question

 

I have the point shp file as shown in the attachment, but I need it to a polygon shp file with each polygon having the area calculated. I was thinking of drawing the polygons in another layer and exporting that layer as a shp file.  Is that the proper approach to this or is there another way?  If so, how can you create a new empty layer and draw the polygons on it? ( I tried add data under the map tab but I am not seeing how to create a new empty layer and drawing the polygons on it)

 

Thanks again for the help
