There are some students who relocated from California and currently making the best use of the floral arranging skills they earned at school in the San Francisco Bay Area. After they earned practical skills of floral design in California, some of them go back to their home country or move to other states in America. And they are enjoying floral arrangement as a hobby or professional floral designer.

Some of them have their own classes. Some people work as a floral designer. Some enjoy teaching floral art as a hobby. They go back or move to Japan, Korea, Hong Kong, Colombia, Idaho and some other states in America.

From person to person the way they enjoy is different. When they look for a job as a floral designer, they use a certificate they got from a floral design school. Some of them requested the school to send a recommendation letter when they find a job. Once in a while they send a letter to the school they graduated from to inform how they are doing. And it is so nice to hear from such students who live in foreign countries or some other states and enjoying working on floral decorations.

Those who offer their own classes usually make constant contact with a school and from time to time, they join the local seminars held by the school. Take Japanese graduates for instance, the instructor usually visits Japan where they are offering their own classes. It is a very good opportunity for the school to offer maintenance services to graduates as well as their own students by way of offering local seminars.

Quite recently California Flower Art Academy received a message from one of graduates. She now lives in the State of Idaho and enjoy teaching floral arrangements. She completed all courses including Fresh Flower Arrangement Instructor Course a couple of years ago. Therefore she earned a wide range of floral design skills, which makes it possible for her to offer her own flower arranging classes.

The student from Hong Kong went back to Hong Kong a few years ago. After she went back to Hong Kong, she gave us a message that she would get a job of floral designer in Macau. From person to person the purpose for learning floral design is different. However there is one common point that is everybody loves flowers and like floral arranging.

Although the purpose of learning floral arrangement is different, we hope they will make the best use of their floral arranging skills not matter in what kind of manner they use their valuable skills.

California Flower Art Academy is pleased to help those who are enthusiastic to earn skills of floral designs . They can make a choice of their most favorite course from a WIDE RANGE OF PROGRAMS California Flower Art Academy offers.
