Floral design without basic skill is not valuable like a home with fragile base

See also

Once in a while, we find a student who wants to join business oriented arrangement course (such as wedding floral decoration course) although they do not have sufficient basic knowledge and skills of flower arranging. Students who have no or only little bit experiences of floral designs OR who have no educational background relating to flower arrangements are usually recommended to start from flower arrangement basic program or elementary course.

Why do they want to go to a higher level of course without signing up for basic program/course where they can learn and earn basic arranging skills ? Why do they want to skip elementary course and prefer a short cut towards a higher level of courses ?

We guess that the main reason behind above mentioned attitude is mainly and seemingly because they would like to minimize expenses of learning flower arrangements. Or they want to save time by skipping elementary course. If that is the case, they should reconsider their decision so that they start from the program for learning basic skills without which it is impossible to make a future progress and development on their flower arranging skills.

Especially for those who are planning to be a professional floral designer such as a wedding floral decorator or floral shop owner, it is mandatory to earn good basic skills first of all. Only after acquiring a decent level of basic skills, they should proceed to business oriented programs such as a wedding floral arrangement course etc. Otherwise they MAY repent later when they recognize difficulties of earning a higher level of designing skills.

Students should be cool enough in judging which way is better for them, minimizing a small amount of investment whereby they have a hard time later OR positively making investment of small amount of tuition whereby they can easily enhance their skills easily, which will greatly help them promote their floral business with much less difficulties.

Quite frankly speaking even those who learn floral designs strictly for hobby should follow the way mentioned in the above. If any student expresses his/her intention for jumping to a higher level of course by skipping a basic program, instructors and schools are highly recommended to persuade a student to start from a basic course.

If you are planning to learn flower arrangements, it is highly recommended to take lessons that is the most practical way for earning a good skill. California Flower Art Academy offers a WIDE RANGE OF PROGRAMS from Introductory Program to a professional course. For more information, contact
