    Hi,

    Java tutorials: The Java™ Tutorials

    Do you have a hobby? Develop an app that counts your scores, inventory system for stuff you collect, etc.
    Have a look in the forums, there are loads of beginner questions, try to solve those assignments.

    If you have very little or no experience with Java at all, I would suggest learning the basics of the language before you start working with graphics. Start with basic console programs, from "hello world" up to perhaps printing certain shapes with characters. From there, you should move on to learning how Java works as an object oriented language. After you have a firm grasp on the language itself, only then would I suggestion you look into graphics via the AWT/Swing libraries.

    I would actually recommend starting with Processing. It's built on top of Java, so you'd be learning Java syntax and logic, but it makes it easier to get something visual and interactive up and running faster than pure Java does.

    Check it out if you feel like it: Processing.org
