About this Event

Don't know how to draw? Neither do I, but I haven't let it stop me from making cool stuff!
This class is for you!

Maybe you are intimidated by Adobe Illustrator or CorelDraw? Maybe they just cost too much?
This class is for you!

Are you interested in using the lasers, vinyl cutter, or Multicam CNC router, but don't know how to get started with designing for yourself instead of downloading?
This class is for you!

This is a class for absolute beginners. You don't need any previous experience. We are going to cover just the basics of Inkscape from moving around the interface to basic shapes. Be sure you bring your laptop with Inkscape installed. Don't forget a mouse.
Download Inkscape for FREE here: https://inkscape.org/en/download/

Topics:
Canvas navigation
Managing documents
Shape tool basics
Selection techniques
Transforming objects with selector
Grouping
Setting fill and stroke
Alignment
Z-order

We won't be covering anything advanced in this class. If you need to know more about image tracing or advanced text manipulation, look for one of our other Inkscape classes that will cover those topics and more.


Additional classes to look for:
Inkscape 102 - Image prep for our tools

Special Considerations and Warnings

**Please bring a laptop with Inkscape installed so you can get hands on experience. Don't forget your mouse too.

I will be using version 0.92.3 on Windows, but the concepts and content should be universal.
