These floral arrangements were made by our students under instructions of our flower design teachers during real lessons in the classroom of California Flower Art Academy except the one in the center which was designed and made by one of our graduates (Fei Shen) without any help by our instructor.
All arrangements shown here use fresh flowers that are living plants. We used to teach artificial flower arrangements using dried and silk flowers. However we could not gather enough number of students. Therefore we stopped offering classes of artificial flower designs. In short the reason behind ceasing the class is a limited demand. Currently we concentrate on teaching fresh flower arrangements.
When comparing fresh flower arrangement with fake floral design, we find following advantages in fresh flowers:
A. Looking: Real flowers look much better and more graceful than fake flowers.
B. Flavor: Since fresh flowers are living, they offer very nice flavor.
C. Life of flower: Since they are living, we can treat them like pets or children. Namely if they are hungry, we feed food (supply water).
If they are tired, we give them sweet soda such as Seven Up etc that really helps them recover from fatigue (Just try it). Although we prefer fresh flowers, there are advantages in artificial flowers such as we can use them repeatedly (life is long and cost effective) and we don't have to supply water (maintenance free:).If you love fresh flowers and want to earn decent floral design skills, we can help.
