All these floral arrangements were made by our students under instructions by flower design teachers during real lessons in the classroom of California Flower Art Academy.
If you are familiar with flower arrangements OR if you have floral design skills, you are in a position to make evaluation about arrangements made by others. There must be various factors for evaluating floral arrangements such as the design concept, shape of design, choice of flowers, combination of flower colors, balance between each element, how the focal flower is used, how line flower and mass flowers are used and also the preciseness about the use of each element as well as element manipulating techniques and overall appearance of the arrangement whatsoever.
If someone must make a total score reflecting the evaluation outcome, the taste of the evaluater MAY affect the total score. One of important secrets for winning a good impression from evaluaters is to use a well organized and appropriate color of background.
As far as the type of design is pretty common or standard like the second arrangement in this page, evaluation itself MAY not be so difficult. However when it comes to evaluating the upper side and the bottom arrangements, it MUST be a difficult job because these designs cannot be found in our daily life and the person in charge of evaluating or appreciating these arrangement MIGHT not be familiar with such designs.
Anyway if you would like to become familiar with floral arrangements, not only for evaluating other artists' designs but also on your own skill and techniques for making arrangements, you are recommended to view and appreciate as many designs as possible and also making your own arrangements as well as getting along with as many floral designers as possible.
In order to implement above mentioned idea, it is an effective way to visit various flower shows (floral design exhibitions) where you can get acquainted with other floral artists.
You COULD get a lot of information regarding flower arrangements as well as floral design industry from such artists. In a sense the world of floral artists is small and people engaged in flower arranging are connected each other through their friends. No matter which direction you go, enjoying floral designs strictly as a hobby OR using your skill for doing floral business, having lots of connections often help you do a better job.
