Upon successful completion of this course students will be able to:
1. Describe techniques, materials, and mechanics utilized in the creation
of a variety of floral designs.
2. Compare and contrast a variety of types of floral designs according to
their components and styles.
3. Evaluate a variety of design styles and design concepts used in the
creation of floral designs.
4. Evaluate current trends in the floral design industry.
5. Incorporate new design styles into floral arrangements.
6. In course repeats, students will enhance their skills and master
increasingly complex designs by incorporating a variety of new and cutting
edge floral design and styling techniques, methods, and mechanics
demonstrated by guest designers into their own designs.
Topics and Scope
Six selected designers will deliver presentations in their area of
expertise on design styles, styling techniques, and use of
specific floral items in arrangements. Topics will vary according to the
designers represented and may include:
1. Wedding designs
2. Sympathy/funeral designing
3. Design concepts for home
4. Tropicals and exotic flowers
5. Designing for office use
6. Designing for profit
7. Using dry and silk materials
9. European design
Each three-hour class period will be divided into three segments:
1. Introduction of designer and topic
3. Question/answer period
Repeating students will incorporate new and increasingly complex
construction methods, mechanics, and design styles and techniques into
their own designs.
1. Observe demonstrations and collect and read handouts (approximately 5
pages per week) on design and theory.
2. Participate in question and answer sessions.
3. At the end of each lecture/demonstration, each student will complete a
review sheet, summarizing and evaluating new procedures, techniques, and
4. Critique designs on display: make sketches and take pictures; detail
construction, mechanics, inventiveness, and techniques of design in 2-3
5. Final project:
a) Compile a portfolio of review sheets, sketches, pictures, and written
critiques of each week's display;
b) Complete and submit one original floral design based on one designer's
presentation. In course repeats, designs will be evaluated for
increased complexity of design and demonstration of more advanced skills.
