Can you already develop in JavaScript?  https://www.w3schools.com/js/ is the typical tutorial.

I'd start there, and make some simple games that work directly on the canvas first.

After that, pick one set of tools and try it out. If it works for you, great, otherwise you've learned something and can try the next.
