You might want to look at Processing ( http://www.processing.org/ ).   
Although it Java and not Python, it's great for first getting into  
programming.  With one or two lines of code you can have shapes  
appear on screen.  With a few more lines you can have animation or 3D.

They have lots of documentation too.
