Icon challenges

This unit requires that you have a computer that has Inkscape version 0.92 installed on it. This is free and open source and is available from Inkscape.org. Ask your parent or carer for permission and support to install this software. In this lesson you will be presented with a set of monochrome icons and be challenged to create some of them from scratch, starting from elementary shapes and combining them with path operations. The icons are carefully selected to range from simple ones that are straightforward to produce to more complex ones that require some creative thinking.
