AI ART Bootcamp for Teachers and Librarians: An Online Course on AI Art-Making Tools, Techniques, and Creativity

Learning Revolutions's AI ART Bootcamp for Teachers and Librarians:
An Online Course on AI Art-Making Tools, Techniques, and Creativity

3 x 90-minute live online sessions with Q&A + non-expiring access to the recordings


This virtual bootcamp provides a deep dive into AI art-making and then empowers teachers and librarians to integrate AI Art into educational programs and to create a vibrant AI Art ecosystem in schools and libraries by fostering creativity, critical thinking, and cross-disciplinary connections.

"I have been using AI in one form or another since I began making art on computers in the 1990s. I only truly started using image-generating AI tools around 2020. But the levels of sophistication of the AI algorithms have developed so rapidly that it feels like I have moved from using a 3000-year-old ancient lyre to a Stradivarius violin in two short years."

- Jon Rafman, artist
"I felt like I was witnessing magic. Now that it’s been a few months, I’m like, ‘Well, yes, of course, AI generates anything.’"
- Karen X. Cheng, creator of Cosmopolitan's first magazine cover generated by an AI program

Nino began her career as a fine art photographer and has since worked as a professor/teacher and director/chair of art and photography in different countries.

Nino is known for her conceptual and thought-provoking images. Her work makes a commentary on current social and cultural issues and her photographs take on a more ethereal and otherworldly quality. She has a special interest in stereoscopy and cutting-edge technologies such as AI, which she incorporates into her work to create a sense of depth and alternate realities.

Nino's work has been exhibited in galleries and museums around the world, and she has won numerous awards and accolades for continuing to push the boundaries of art, including an Award by the President of the USA for excellence in teaching Digital Arts. This year, Nino’s AI-generated images won first and second place at the annual Stereoscopic Society Exhibition and the Martin Wilsher Award “for all the outstanding work done with AI in stereoscopy and in raising the profile of stereoscopy in teaching work.” She also won a 2023 Pearson National Teaching Award for digital innovator of the year.
