You should start with a tutorial about lines, like
Then apply the keys to rectangular and ellipse select tools (you will
see Gimp likes to use some keys a lot), or find some other tutorials
about selections, and fill the selections with the bucket.
Gimp is not a tool like other where you have circle or star or <fill
the blank> shape tools. You have to combine the tools, and sometimes
filters, like GFig or Grid.
