This photo shows advanced level floral design which we call Free Style Arrangement. The arrangement was made during a real lesson of floral decoration at the classroom of California Flower Art Academy
. Since the title of design is Free Style, this arrangement was made without sticking to the conventional way of designs. Therefore in a sense this is a Contemporary Floral Arrangement. As far as students follow the same style of arrangement as their instructor makes, OR as long as we keep making similar designs as better experienced designers make, the job of floral arranging is not so difficult.
However once they get a new assignment of creating a new type of arrangement that reflects their own idea and concept, it is a little bit difficult job UNLESS students have been learning floral design for a long period of time and experiencing a variety of arrangements so far. First imitate, learn basics and then master fundamentals. Only after this process they proceed to the next level which is learning a broad range and variety of arrangements from their instructor. After earning a decent level of skills, they go to the next step that is learning advanced level of designs. Then after mastering advanced level of arrangements, they challenge creating their own designs.
