Floral arrangement lesson: Age does not matter to join a floral design class

Once in a while prospective students raise a question, before enrollment, such as “I am quite old. Do you think I qualify to join your school ?” OR ”I am not so young. I am not sure whether I can catch up with floral design lessons. Do you think I can join the class ?”. Answer is, of course, “YES”. No matter how old they are, they can take lessons at a floral design school. I have never heard there is a floral school that has a restriction about the age of students attending a flower arranging class.

Generally speaking as far as they understand what teachers say and can make minimum required communication in English, they usually qualify to take lessons of floral designs. If you have even a little bit concern, you can raise above mentioned question to the admission office. Then you will find your concern does not make sense at all.

Take California Flower Art Academy, the ages of students is widely diversified. It ranges from 16 to 60 which is a guess made by the writer of this article because California Flower Art Academy did not ask the age of applicants who want to join the school. The typical case where very young students (mostly high school students) take a lesson at this school is they needed to implement some programs designed by the high school they belong to and attending a lesson at a floral design school can satisfy this requirement.

On the other hand, we have a quite old student who looks somewhere around 60 years old. Some old people want to learn flower arrangement for hobby and quite limited number of old student wants to learn it for doing floral business. One of the advantages of learning floral arrangement after getting old is that such students have had various experiences in their life which greatly helps them to evaluate floral decorations and they know how to appreciate flower arrangements.

As far as they have enthusiastic attitude for learning floral designs, there should be no restrictions about the age and they deserve to learn and enjoy floral arrangements no matter how old they are. Quite frankly speaking, regardless of the subject they learn, when it comes to the age of starting to learn, THE YOUNG, THE BETTER. The reason behind this is generally speaking younger people are quite flexible in the way of thinking and they can easily learn and earn anything new. Generally speaking the memory capacity of younger people is much better than older people.

Therefore the ideal way of approach is to start learning floral designs when they are young. As is often the case however, when they are young, financial situation does not allow them to join a school. Due to this situation, many people are obliged to push out their learning schedule.

The bottom line is no matter how old you are now, it is not too late for you to start learning flower arrangements. California Flower Art Academy has been teaching floral designs since 1990 to local residents in the San Francisco Bay Area and Silicon Valley (San Jose) as a floral school certified by Flower Decorators Association (Tokyo Japan).
