These flower arrangements were designed and made by our students under the directions of our instructor during real lessons in the classroom of California Flower Art Academy
. They are what we call "All Round Arrangement" (or "All Around Arrangement" in Europe). At our school, the first arrangement students learn at Fresh Flower Arrangement Elementary Course
is this design because all round arrangement is the basics of basics.
The fundamental concept about this arrangement is that this design looks the same no matter from which direction it is viewed. Namely regardless of the angle (from front, side or back side), it looks same in its appearance. The view from the top should be round. And it is basically symmetrical arrangement.
The overall appearance is usually quite simple. Due to its simple design, this arrangement is the first one among 12 different designs in the curriculum of Fresh Flower Arrangement Elementary Course
. Although the shape is simple and looks easy to make, it can have variations by changing the color, type of flowers and size as well. Therefore as far as they are made with a high level of craftsmanship (or "craftswomanship"), even all round arrangement can be well used for a big party such as weddings and birthday etc.
Needless to say it is quite enough for the display for interior home decoration. Thus even for entry level of students, making this basic arrangement can be well enjoyed.
Quite frankly speaking, students should not proceed to the next level of arrangement UNLESS they can make all round flower arrangement. Quite fortunately we did not find any students who cannot make this basic arrangement at the Elementary Course.
After all round arrangement, students are scheduled to learn triangle, vertical, oval and diamond arrangement as well as S shaped and L shaped designs PLUS wearable arrangement such as corsage and bouquet (all together 12 designs) in the Elementary Course. Some of them are asymmetrical arrangement which MAY need more careful attention.
Before starting to take lessons of the Elementary Course, some people MAY imagine that this course is too basic and MIGHT sound boring. However once they start learning various arrangement in this course their "concern" is totally gone. Some of them comment the level of this course COULD be intermediate or even advanced course level because other schools seldom teach asymmetrical design. If you have completely mastered basic designs per this course, you can enjoy making home decoration with your own floral designs.
