There are two primary GUI toolkits: GTK+ and Qt

There are others, but these two make up the bulk of the GUI toolkits used for GNOME desktop applications (GTK+) and KDE desktop applications (Qt). As an FYI: A GNOME desktop can use a Qt-developed application and a KDE desktop can use a GTK+-developed application as long as the appropriate support libraries are installed.

Two GTK+ tutorials (that I have not personally read/used):
GTK+-2.0 tutorial
The GTK+ Tutorial

For Qt, there are "training materials" available from the docs portion of the Qt website:
Learn Qt
