No matter what kind of skill you learn, it is so important to do it step by step. Challenging very difficult skill from the first beginning stage does not make sense. Only after you become familiar with basic knowledge and skills, you are recommended to proceed to the next level of program. Take swimming lesson for instance, it is quite natural to start from a free style or breaststroke. Even if you start from challenging a very difficult style such as butterfly, it does not help you earn a good skill.
Learning floral arrangement is not exceptional. Once in a while we find a student who wants to jump at a lesson of wedding floral arrangements with no previous experience in floral designing despite the fact that she does not have even a basic knowledge and skills of floral decorations. The reason behind this is that she wants to minimize the budget of taking lessons and also she does not want to waste time OR she would like to start the business of wedding flower decorating services as soon as possible.
If she challenges earning wedding flower arrangement skills with no basic knowledge and experiences, she will MOST PROBABLY end up with wasting her time and money because it is next to impossible to earn a decent skill of wedding floral designs. Even if it looks like wasting money to take lessons of basic flower arrangement, you will recognize later that you made a wise decision.
Due to the reason mentioned above, most schools or instructors do not recommend novice class students to take lessons of business oriented course such as wedding arrangement course or funeral decoration course. If you are planning to learn wedding flower arrangement from now on, you should recognize how important it is to start from a elementary course of fresh flower arrangement.
Taking lessons of elementary course before starting to learn wedding flower arrangement is a kind of advanced investment which does not cost so much. In order for you not to repent later, the way it should be is to start from Fresh Flower Arrangement Elementary Course. And only after completing this elementary course, why not join a higher level of course such as Wedding Party Arrangement Basic Course ?
California Flower Art Academy has been teaching a broad range of floral designs from European arrangement to Japanese Ikebana, wedding to funeral decorations AND beginner to professional levels since 1990 in the San Francisco Bay Area and Silicon Valley (San Jose) as a floral school certified by Flower Decorators Association (Tokyo Japan). If you have no experience in floral design, you can start from INTRODUCTORY PROGRAM for less than $100. For more information, feel free to contact email@example.com
