Are you interested in a volunteer job as a floral artist ?
All these floral arrangements were made by our students under instructions of our floral design teachers during real lessons in the classroom of California Flower Art Academy.
Among our students we find some of them would like to use floral arranging skills for doing volunteer work, such as floral decoration at a church she/he belongs to. Or some MAY be thinking of donating or teaching floral arrangements at a retirement home as a volunteer. As far as they offer any works/jobs free of charge, it can be considered a volunteer work. Our instructor often donates several flower arrangements at a party held by the club she belongs to.
Even if your goal is running your own floral shop OR doing wedding floral services (as a business), it is a good idea to work as a volunteer before implementing your idea of doing floral business. You had better study the possibilities of getting tax refund on the flower arranging materials fee as well as the labor fee you donate in order to reduce the expenses you have to pay from your pocket.
In order to continue volunteer work or donation, you don't have to spend a lot of money for flower arrangements or spend too much time. Namely it is not necessary to make a big deal for making a large scale flower arrangements. Even simple and easy table arrangements will work for offering better atmosphere.
Recipients or beneficiaries of your kind work must be still thankful to you for your job. The merit and advantage from volunteer work or donation is that you are appreciated and your decorations are admired by many people around you. You MAY recognize yourself the value of your presence in the community through doing a volunteer job.
