European design skills help make Ikebana arranging. Vice versa
The floral arrangement shown in this page is made by our student under the directions of our instructor during real lesson in the classroom of California Flower Art Academy.
Judging from our past experiences, we can definitely say that people who have a decent skill of European floral arranging (or American flower designs) are pretty good at making Ikebana arrangements in an artistic sense and arranging skills as well. On the other hand, those who have a reasonable skill in Ikebana are also pretty good at designing and making Western style of arrangements (European and/or American designs).
Namely experiences in either style of arrangement can help each other. And also there exists the similar factors, concept and skills between these two arts just like a good softball players is good at playing a baseball. Some of prospective students are at a loss about which style they should learn, Ikebana or European arrangement. Or some people wonder which floral art they should learn first, European style or Japanese Ikebana.
We usually comment ,in this kind of case, that they had better learn European floral arrangements only because the skill of European designs can be used not only for hobby but also for doing business while the skill of Japanese Ikebana can be seldom used when doing business in the United States.
However no matter which way it goes, the skill our students earn first is definitely helpful when learning and making another type of floral designs.
