AI Art Class: Create Your Own AI Images with Stable Diffusion

June 1, 2023 @ 6:00 pm8:00 pm

Step into the cutting-edge world of AI artistry with this hands-on class, perfect for beginners interested in AI, stable diffusion, and creating AI images. We’ll demystify AI concepts and guide you through the process of generating your own unique AI image, all without sending your data to third parties in the cloud.

We’ll dive into the world of Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs), understanding how they use Stable Diffusion to learn from datasets and create stunning AI images. You’ll learn about Embeddings, the AI equivalent of an artist’s sketch, and how they capture the essence of an image in a way that an AI can understand and manipulate.

A high-power GPU will be on hand, allowing us to process images quickly and efficiently. You’ll have the chance to take pictures of each other, creating your own datasets and producing unique embeddings for each participant. And the best part? We’ll use these embeddings to generate AI-created images of each participant, providing a unique takeaway from the class.

The class will work through a Google Colab document together, a versatile tool that allows you to write and execute Python code through your web browser. You’ll get hands-on experience preparing datasets, running models, and generating AI images. Plus, you can take your Google Colab notebook home and continue experimenting and creating with AI.

So whether you’re an artist looking to explore a new medium, or you’re simply curious about AI and want a unique, interactive experience, this class is for you. Not only will you walk away with a new understanding of AI and your own AI-generated image, but you might also find a new hobby, side gig, or even business opportunity.

Tickets are available online for $25 or at the door for $40. Come and join us at The Cola in St. Louis for an unforgettable evening of AI exploration!

What’s Included:

  • A detailed explanation of AI, Neural Networks, Deep Learning, GANs, Stable Diffusion, and Embeddings.
  • Hands-on experience preparing datasets and running models.
  • Your own AI-generated image.
  • Refreshments provided on-site.
  • A certificate of completion as an AI Artist Engineer.
  • A Google Colab notebook to continue your AI journey at home.

What to Bring:

  • Your laptop, if you wish to run the Google Colab notebook during the class (not mandatory, as we’ll have a high-power GPU on-site).
  • Your curiosity and excitement for AI and art!

Please note: No prior experience with AI or coding is required. This is a beginner-friendly class. All are welcome.
