With over ten hours of instruction in 119 videos, this course covers all of Inkscape's tools and features as well as providing hands-on, practical assignments. The progressive assignments help you master the skills and concepts taught in the video lessons.
The course culminates with a major project - the creation of a colorful layout for a fictional board game. This project is approached one element at a time with students creating their own copy of the design.
Every tool in the Inkscape toolbar is covered in this course. The pen and node tools are the most important to master, as they are the heart of vector graphics. Additional lessons explain the most commonly used operations such as: path operations, bitmap tracing, cloning, tiled clones, clipping, masking, patterns, offsets, and live path effects. Several filters and extensions are demonstrated as well.
The skills acquired learning Inkscape will be useful even if you eventually transition to another vector graphics program such as Adobe Illustrator or Corel Draw. The core functionality of all these programs is quite similar.
Inkscape works on Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux, and it's free.
