Sachin Kamath

Sachin Kamath

Co-Founder AI Lemon Academy

The weekly video lectures in AI for Visual Design will be conducted by artist, generative AI expert, and creative tech entrepreneur, Sachin Kamath. In recent years, Sachin has designed AI workflows and trained creative teams at Amazon, Aditya Birla, and many more. His trainings center on helping creatives unlock AI’s full potential in their daily work to reduce design inefficiency and boost creative output.

Praise for Sachin Kamath’s Previous Programs

“I found the AI training course that Sachin did… to be of great value to our design team… Very rarely have we been able to implement the learning from a team training from day 1. But with the AI immersion we got, the whole team was able to run with it right away… Highly recommended.”

“As an engineer turned creative, Sachin simplifies complex ideas, deeply understands art, and teaches with finesse. His course on prompt design adeptly demonstrates how the 'MidJourney' approach combined with AI can facilitate the creation of remarkable images. Sachin's patience and clarity makes it easy to learn this new discipline.”

“Sachin’s skills as a teacher, presenter, and Generative AI expert are second to none and have been super valuable to me.”

“If you're looking to take your creativity to the next level and explore the world of AI, then Sachin is the person to follow. If you want to unleash your full potential and bring your ideas to life, I highly recommend… checking out his [AI] program.”
