This course is aimed at the complete beginner, where the very basics of Inkscape are learned. This section is great for getting started in vector art in general and Inkscape in particular.
Inkscape is highly acclaimed vector art software, and it is completely free and open source. If you want to get started creating vector art without splurging on license fees then this is a great place to start. Once you have gained the key skills you can easily and painlessly switch over to commercial software if you want. (Or you can continue using Inkscape of course!)

Teacher and Engineer
Hi, my name is Paul and I am an IT teacher and an engineer. As a teacher / engineer I can combine my strong technical background with the experience I gained in passing on skills and knowledge to my students.
As a teacher I believe that it students learn better when they are learning actively. That's why I include a lot of practice exercises in my courses.
In addition to teaching and engineering, as a hobby I am enthusiastic about illustrating and 3D modeling.
I am SOOOOOOOO Excited that you have made this course available!!! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU I am looking forward to creating now more than ever!
Maybe I should have started at a slightly higher skill level, but I like the reminders.
Great introduction to InkScape
nice course here
it was a good course, I was hesitated which rate to give 4 or 3.5, I wished if the instructor covered more topics but for a 2 hours course I believe the instructor did a great job and he covered some topics in details. anyway I am not great at this so briefly it's a great course for inkscape beginners like me so I highly recommend it.
Exactly what I needed. Each notion is synthesized in a very short lesson (5 minutes average), and it is what is needed. The exercises can be completed in more than one way, and are not as simple as they first seem. I have tried with poor success to use Inkscape for quite a while now, and this course does the job : progressive, and gives a good idea of what can be achieved if I ever decide to go further, and that definitely makes me WANT to go further. Despite a few issues due to inkscape versions and operating system, I am very glad I took this course. Thank you !
Very informative for a beginner like myself. There were a few instances where I got stuck but most of the lessons were problem free.
All the basics I need to know. Thank you.
Good for beginners
