These floral arrangements were made by our students under the directions of our instructor during real lessons in the classroom of California Flower Art Academy
. As you experience to various kinds of floral arrangements, you MAY find a lot of similarities among different kind of designs. Take the above two arrangements for instance, the left one is what is called Oval Arrangement and the right one is called Diamond Arrangement. The names of designs derive from the shape from the top view (bird's eye view). Although details in manipulation and design are different between two designs, they look similar each other. How about two designs below ?
Both are wreath arrangements. Left one is for wedding or party use and the right one is for funeral wreath. There are similarities in the shape and the way of making. The big difference is flowers and the colors between two designs.
You can make a happy party arrangement by using the same skills used for funeral flowers. Or you can enjoy a wonderful happy designs only by changing the type of flowers and color of flowers. Namely you can utilize the skill of making one kind of designs for making another one. The more designs you learn, the more possibilities you have for enjoying broader range of variations. Once you completely master a certain design, you can utilize the skill when making another designs. Since there are subtle differences in the way of approach to a different designs, you need to understand it before starting the arrangement. However you have much less difficulties for making another type of design. Suppose you join Fresh Flower Arrangement Elementary Course, you have opportunities of learning various types of designs (12 designs in total). By way of completely master these 12 designs with repeated practice, you will become ready to step up to the next level of arrangements. The most important thing is that you completely master each design by way of practicing repeatedly what you learned during lessons.
After you have earned a certain level of arranging skill, you will become able to design a higher level of arrangements if you get a kind of hint and little advice from your instructor. California Flower Art Academy offers a Wide Range of Programs
