The photo shows one of floral arrangements made at the classroom of California Flower Art Academy
during a real lesson by our instructor. We teach basic designs through high end ones depending on the progress of each student.
Some students without having sufficient basic skills want to jump to difficult designs. This should be avoided by any means. Our instructors, of course, do not recommend them to learn a higher level of floral designs until they form a solid basic skills of floral arranging. That is why our students usually start with Fresh Flower Arrangement Elementary Course
UNLESS he/she has sufficient floral design experience or educational background relating to flower arranging.
The reason behind our strong recommendation for them to start from Elementary Course is that LACKING BASIC SKILLS WILL RUIN THEIR LIFE AS A FLORAL ARTIST WITHOUT ANY DOUBT. As far as the knowledge about how to prolong the life of fresh flowers, how to use floral foams and vase etc is concerned, it is no big deal and everybody can learn easily and quickly. Many people learn it only from the information online. However when it comes to the methodology and way of arranging flowers, it has a profound and deep secret and know-how.
Most students make mistakes in floral arranging until they earn a certain level of skills. When they make a mistake, it must be corrected by somebody who should be a flower arranging instructor teaching to the student. This is the most important reason why you have to take lessons if you have no experience in floral designs. If you insist on self-taught method, you will have a difficult time later because people without sufficient knowledge and skills of basic floral arrangement cannot develop their skills. Again it is mandatory to learn from a well experienced instructor if you would like to earn a good flower arranging skill.
California Flower Art Academy train our students by way of hands on training of ONE ON ONE instructions limiting number of students to no more than 4 per class. Actually this is a semi private lesson which is important especially to beginner students.
