This course is quite bluntly, awesome!!! Our passion for teaching floral designing here at Rittners Floral School in Boston, MA. definitely shows in this exciting diploma program.
In the Academy Award winning movie, Forrest Gump makes the observation that “life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you are going to get.” I find that that observation also applies to the demographic make up of all of the various floral design classes here at Rittners Floral School throughout the year. We enjoy such diversity in background, approach, and geographic origin in all of our various programs.
It makes my job especially interesting.
Our current Day Class includes folks from seven states! In fact, checking our demographics of all of our classes over the past year alone we find fifteen different states represented. Our strength is in the Northeast, but the quality of our courses also attracts folks from all over North America and abroad. That is pretty neat especially considering that we are a small school.
My welcome to the Day Class of 2010/2011!
It is truly a privilege to be sharing the art of floral design with motivated people. I find that I always appreciate the sheer talent and abilities of my students. Last year’s students were awesome! Based on the performance of my current class over just the first couple of days, I suspect that the class that is now underway will be equally great and will inspire us as we hope to inspire them.
A short time ago we presented a little video on Youtube featuring a lovely classical vase arrangement made in a watermelon base. Rich and opulent. Classical floral art! Thanks to many of you for the nice emailed comments. Here is another demonstration showing designing in a watermelon base–but contemporary rather than classical styling.
