Gathering: CreatingAI Art Together

Friday, July 19th @ 10:00 - 11:00 am

Curious about AI art? Come join us as we create gorgeous floral AI art in community and then post our favorites to our shared Instagram handle @bouquetsbydalleandwe. In class, we each dream up our own text prompts, riffing on the monthly 4-word minimum required prompt (i.e. in June, it was "rose, vase, ditsy, vintage"). Join us in July and help us teach the AI algorithms that humans seek floral beauty & joy! No experience or tools necessary, and you'll leave knowing all you need to continue to experiment with AI art on your own.
Fee: Annual members - free; Non-members - $40 or equivalent in-store purchase
