Dreamr is committed to providing guest instructors to teach youth classes on the various creative software and tools available in the The Dreamr Labs as part of our ongoing partnership with The Y. Classes are recorded (both the instructor + their screen) and the dreamr team turns each class into an online course complete with downloadable guides. These mini-courses are entry level and designed for youth ages 10-18, we call them Dreamr Lab Sessions.
Sessions are organized in different sections below based on the software being utilized in the guest instructor's lesson.
Adobe Premiere Pro
- Drawing in Adobe Illustrator
- Photography & Lighting 101
About The Dreamr Lab
The Dreamr Lab concept is an ongoing partnership between Dreamr and The Y to build and provide digital creative labs for youth members at select YMCA locations.
Taking a giant leap from the typical "computer lab", The Dreamr Lab is filled with high end computers built for heavy graphics processing and media creation. Each lab has creative work stations with Adobe Creative Cloud suite and a fully functioning music studio with sound proof vocal booth complete with Ableton Live. The Lab also comes equipped with high end vlogging and photo cameras with professional lighting. The walls inside the labs are infused with creativity from murals donated by local artists that can be used as backgrounds for content creation.
The first Dreamr Lab was conceived during the Las Vegas stop on the Dream Machine Tour (August 2020), when we decided we would crowdfund $25,000 and build the digital creative lab concept in just 4 days. Check out the vlog below:
Dreamr x The Y celebrated the second location opening in March 2021 and we are looking forward to continuing to build momentum and get more youth exposure and access to the digital creative tools needed to pursue all kinds of dreams in the digital age. Instead of crowdfunding, The Dreamr Lab 2 was made possible by a generous donation of $25,000 from Cox Communications and meaningful contributions from the dreamr team, Dreamr, Inc., The Y, and Graffiti Park Las Vegas.
