Some prospective students who contact our floral design school are concerned about taking lessons only because they have no previous experiences of flower arrangements. If you are one of them OR if you are worrying about whether or not you can catch up with flower arranging lessons at our school, this is nothing but unnecessary concern. Some students who did not grow up in America worries about lessons done in English. But most people are concerned only because of having no previous experiences in flower arrangements. Again this is nothing but unnecessary concern.
About 90% of our students have no previous experiences in floral arranging. And many of them became nice floral artist with a decent floral design skill as far as they listened to their instructor during lessons and did their best efforts for following what was instructed by their teacher.
Duplicating what instructor does is one of the best ways for entry level of students to earn good skills. Doing and making the arrangements with their own concept, idea and designs should be done only after they have successfully earned a certain level of skills.
Quite frankly speaking, from the standpoint of flower arranging instructor, we feel it much easier to teach students without any experience and knowledge than students who already earned wrong skills. It is a little bit difficult to correct or rectify their wrong skills. In this sense, not only students but also instructors should feel happier if they are quite new in doing flower arrangements.
Even if they have had no experiences before entering our school, learning from lessons and practicing what they learned at the classroom will remarkably help students be a good floral artist. After lesson is over, all students can take back home all materials not only fresh flowers but also floral foam and container they used during a lesson. This helps them practice (duplicate) the same way of arranging after getting back home.
It is important for students to repeat what they learned during a lesson before forgetting how to make the same way of arrangement. The bottom line is the key to success for you to be a good floral designer is practice what your learned at the classroom and it has nothing to do with having previous experience or not.
