HTML5 Canvas Shape Groups

To group multiple shapes together with Konva, we can instantiate
a Konva.Group() object and then add shapes to it with the add() method.
Grouping shapes together is really handy when we want to transform multiple
shapes together, e.g. if we want to move, rotate, or scale multiple shapes
at once. Groups can also be added to other groups to create more complex
Node trees. For a full list of attributes and methods, check out the Konva.Group documentation.
