This workshop will teach artists, designers, and creatives how to use generative models like ChatGPT, Stable Diffusion, and DALL-E to accelerate their work with AI. These generative models continue to revolutionize how artists, storytellers, designers, and other creatives make new work. Participants will learn how these AIs can help them generate text, images, and even video, and how they can be used to save time and unlock new possibilities in creative projects.

The workshop will feature hands-on tutorials for producing interesting content with these models, a comprehensive overview of various community-built extensions and tools for the models, and an introduction to “prompt engineering” — the art and science of communicating with these models in natural language to achieve desired results. Additionally, participants will gain a deeper understanding of how these models actually work.

Objective
