Description

Class Experience

Through this workshop, students will get to learn the following: Students will learn about how to create landscapes that contain a foreground, middle, and background composition. My goal is that students will also discuss challenges they stumbled upon along the way of designing their landscape illustrations. 
Mara Latorre is a cat momma of two adorable kitties and much more! She is a hybrid between a visual artist and an Urban Planner. Back in 2011, she received her bachelor's degree in Sociology, with an emphasis in Urban Studies, from the University of South Florida. Mara Latorre had her first exposure to community development programming during her duration with the University Area Community Development Corporation (UACDC), from 2011-2014. During her time with Prodigy Cultural Arts, a youth-based arts enrichment program of the UACDC, she was able to help connect parents and community members to community-based programming offered with the organization, and local partnerships. 

In 2016, Latorre received her Master’s degree in Urban and Regional Planning, and Certificate of Community Real Estate Development from the University of South Florida. Latorre formerly served on the Board of Directors for the Arts Council of Hillsborough County. From 2016-2019, she served as one of the City Planners for the City of Plant City’s Planning & Zoning Division. She also served as a Plant City representative for the Metropolitan Planning Organization’s Bicycle/Pedestrian Advisory Committee and served as an appointed City Liaison for Plant City Main Street. 

Other initiatives Mara has worked on was through her coordination of ‘Arts Rise! North Tampa’s Festival of the Arts’ (2013), and a planning committee member for ‘Lights on Tampa’ (2015), East Hillsborough Discovery Quest (2018), A Taste of Laura Street food festival (2018) and has co-founded Plant City’s annual Bike Ride with the Mayor event (since 2017).  Mara also facilitates 'art jams', organic community-based space that helps to connect people through collaborative art projects. Latorre is also the creator behind The Funky Spork, a blogging platform where she teaches others how to cook and prepare delicious & healthy recipes. 

Latorre is currently an ESL educator, where she integrates her background in art and community-based youth education to teach her learners. Nevertheless, she continues to fuse her Visual Art & Planning knowledge and experience to empower and advocate for others within her community. 
There will be no assigned homework.
-One 11”x14” Sheet of paper- (Preferably Drawing or Bristol Paper) (Students can certainly being more than one sheet if they feel like they 'messed up!') -A set of Graphite Pencils -Erasers -Pencil sharpener -A pack of both colorful markers, pencils, or oil pastels
N/A
1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
The intention of this workshop is to serve as a positive, encouraging, and uplifting space. To address the concern of navigating sensitive topics, I will also do the following:

1.	Allow students to privately message me via the zoom chat box if they do not feel comfortable about a topic or would prefer to leave the classroom and wait in the waiting area, during times of triggering conversations. Once we have finished discussing any triggering topic, I will privately message the student and after them the opportunity to re-enter the classroom.

2.	Not only will I serve as the workshop facilitator, but I will also serve as the discussion moderator. If I feel that any topic is getting out of hand, I will immediately address it then, and either end the topic, or safely find ways to reintroduce another topic that will be more inclusive and comfortable to all of the students to discuss.

3.	I will make myself available to any student that may want to individually reach out to me regarding any ideas or thoughts that may have been generated after the workshop.
