Rittners Floral School Facilities
Contemporary and Geared towards the latest Media Presentation Methods....Yet Placed in a Historical Building and Area With Charm and Character....
The Rittners School of Floral Design is located in the Back Bay which is one of the nicest
residential neighborhoods of Boston, near public transportation, shopping centers, theaters, museums,
libraries and all of the conveniences.
We are proud of our facilities which are both functional and elegant.
We work hard to provide a facility that has all the contemporary teaching tools, yet feels definitely "non institutional!"
Our facility is fully
equipped with a large contemporary floral design laboratory, lecture room, stock rooms and floral
Our Floral Lecture Hall is state of the art with integrated internet access/and group presentation hardware and software.
Our Lecture Hall allows us to present the latest web based media, still visuals and videos from online to our students. It also allows presentation of legacy media (such as DVDS, VHS, etc). And better yet..... We can do all of this larger than life in high definition!
Not only are we fully equipped for contemporary presentations but we are very much equipped for 21st Century Media Production. Still floral product photography and post production as well as video production and editing are all within our knowledge and abilities. And we use these resources and skills constantly to produce content that enhances our students' learning. (If you like this web site, well illustrated by some of these resources, then you will definitely enjoy our school!)
Our Floral Lab Space is spacious allowing plenty of room for students to design with flowers. Large built in cabinets, specialized floral sink and all the necessary tools for floral designing are readily at hand....
We offer specialized floral library facilities that form very unique and comprehensive resources for
our students, and alumni.
The benefit to you is that when you attend Rittners School of Floral
Design, you are not learning in a part time teaching space or an extra room in another kind of business. You are actually learning in a real school of floral art. Yes ... Our roots are multigenerational as a real floral art school, not another kind of business. We are the real thing..
You can be assured that you are learning in a well established and specialized facility.
We can be more effective in our floral art education programs because we have a large number of
Educational Media and Digital Resources
At Rittners we pioneered the use of instructional technology in the teaching of floral art.
Currently a unique collection of over 175,000 images and videos produced in house are used extensively to illustrate lectures
in our Six Month Day Course and Floral Entrepreneurship Seminar. We also use these resources to illustrate teaching points in many of our other programs. Our media materials are used not to replace, but as a supplement to our live presentations and hands-on workshops.
We have great media resources that we integrate into our teaching, but we still believe in live presentations and hands-on practice!
Our very quick computer network and wifi allows us to easily access all kinds of industry supply sources and to share that informtion with our students as well as bringing a world of information into our school.
Our Facebook Page, Pinterest and Flickr pages all allow easy dissemination of a range of information to our students and graduates.
