This is an AI Art class that requires no coding background or any tech fees. I've created a simple app with a friendly interface that allows the user to make AI Art using text boxes and sliders only. We will of course learn about Colab and some Python but the emphasis is on learning how to use the different dials and text boxes to make amazing images. We can choose what to draw, what not to draw, how much creativity, how much computation, which model to use, what size of image, and...
I've been a CS and Math teacher for about ten years. I taught AP Calculus BC and AP Computer Science A (Java) in China for 3 years. During the past 3 years I've been teaching middle school Python for AI and AI Exploreres for Create and Learn. I've always loved art and computer graphics. Now we advent of AI Art I am in some kind of heaven.
Student's will be expected to choose concepts and subjects to explore as howework the week. For example, make blueprints for Mickey Mouse Pez dispensers. Or create a Miami Dolphins Logo in a cyberpunk style, as a charcoal drawing by Van Gogh. The sky is the limit literally and I can't wait to see what these kids come up with!
You will need a gmail account that can access Google Colab. This means a regular gmail account that is not age restricted. The student can use their parent's gmail account if necessary. This is required simply to save the created images and a copy of the Colab notebook to Google Drive.
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
AI Generators are very powerful and these image generators are no exception. They are designed to create any kind of image but the pipeline we are using has an AI filter that prevents inappropriate images from being created. I've also taken a few other precautionary steps. However, even though I've never had an instance of an inappropriate image being created, the best from of prevention is to not try to create one. If the student continues trying to create certain types of images he may eventually succeed. This is something that unfortunately I can't do anything about.
