of California Flower Art Academy goes back to 1990. We have been
teaching a wide range of floral designs from European arrangements to
Japanese Ikebana, wedding to funeral decorations AND beginner to
professional levels as a floral school certified by Flower Decorators
Association who is one of the best established and leading floral
associations in Japan.
Currently our school has main classroom in
San Jose, Santa Clara County and extension class in Burlingame, San
Mateo County near San Francisco Airport in order to serve the Greater
San Francisco Bay Area and Silicon Valley.
We provide lessons
with hands-on-training of ONE ON ONE instructions limiting number of
students to no more than 4 per class (typically 2 to 3) which makes it
possible to do semi-private lessons.
The school is headed by Mieko Hirano whose profile is as stated below: She
was born and grew up in Tokyo and began to learn flower arrangement at
high school age. She learned Japanese traditional Ikebana Arts and
European floral arrangements as well.
She has a
license of the first class floral decorator and Ikebana Instructor, both
of which are certified in Japan. She has more than 30 year experience
as a floral artist and floral arrangement instructor. In 1987 she
relocated to California and started teaching floral designs to local
people in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Currently she is running a
floral design school called California Flower Art Academy offering a
variety of classes and courses of floral designs as well as European
shadow box arts and 3D decoupage.
It is our pleasure to educate
people who wish to earn practical skills of floral designs or brush up
