Your Inkscape Assignment is as follows: Open Inkscape and start experimenting with the tools. Create a vector graphic of your own choosing. You may work on your logo or anything that interests you.
Optional: If you would like step by step instructions for your first project, you may download this How to Create a Cartoon Dinosaur.
When you have completed your Inkscape Assignment, make a new folder nested inside your class folder and name it INKSCAPE. Save 2 files: an Inkscape file (.SVG) and .PNG file.
