No matter what kind of level of floral design skill you have now, associating with people who have better skills and more experiences in flower arrangement definitely helps you improve your floral design skills.
Suppose you have no experiences in flower arranging and join a class to learn floral art, you may find other students who have better skills or more experiences than you. You had better recognize it is a very good opportunity to make friends or get associated with such students in order to get any advices or suggestions on your floral designs.
Regardless of the type of skills you learn, the initial and most important step you should take is to try to “imitate” or “duplicate” the skill of your instructors or mentors who are better experienced than you. Floral designs is not exceptional.
Due to limited time you can spend with your instructor, it may take some time for you to earn good skills satisfactory to you quickly. Therefore making the best use of the chance of spending time with better experienced students who can be your mentor and good adviser is effective so that you can get various practical information which gives you some hints to help you improve your skills.
Learning floral designs only from books or internet has some limitations for you to earn decent skills. That is why you need to take lessons from a reliable instructor. Even if you take lessons from your instructor, it may be a little bit difficult to get sufficient information/advices. Therefore it may make sense for you to get along with better experienced students in floral designing in addition to taking lessons from your instructor.
Getting along with experienced floral artists provides you with not only valuable advices but also lots of stimulation so you can be better motivated to brush up on your flower arranging skills. If you are sticking around the students whose flower arranging skills are in the same level as yours, you will not feel it necessary to earn even higher level of skills or to improve your current techniques.
By getting along with better experienced and higher level of students, you can expose yourself in the better environment to learn more and earn better skills. In this sense, it may be a good idea to attend a higher level of lesson as an observer student if it is allowed to do so.
Also schools sometimes hold internal flower design show in which various level of students participate and display their own arrangements. Participating in such show and also appreciating floral decorations made by higher level of students may provide you with motivation and stimulation for you to learn more about floral designs.
