In order for you to make a right choice, we would like to let you know followings: If you are interested in learning Japanese culture and want to learn Japanese traditional floral art, learning Ikebana is good. However the skill of making Ikebana arrangement is not suitable for you to do floral business in America. Therefore Ikebana should not be recommended if you have even a little bit interest in using your skill for typical floral business. This is recommended for people who learn floral art strictly for hobby. Then how about European style arrangement ? Regardless of your purpose of learning floral art, for hobby or for business, European arrangement works quite well.
Due to above reason, those whose main purpose of learning flower arrangement is to do business had better learn European designs. After earning a decent skill of European designs, you MAY feel like making more creative or unique designs, you should learn Ikebana in addition to European arrangement because blending both skills (European designs and Ikebana) can create beautiful and unique designs like no other. California Flower Art Academy offers a Wide Range of Programs from European designs to Japanese Ikebana, wedding to funeral decorations, home interior to corporate arrangements AND beginner to professional levels.
