Floral Art School Classes

 

Do Something you Love and Get Paid for It.
Become a Certified Floral Designer.

Our school is licensed by the city of Chicago and State of Illinois.

A certificate of completion is given upon taking all 3 of 2-day courses.

We teach all new progressive techniques, and previous experiences do not receive credit. All students start with Beginners’ Course. All classes have to be taken in chronological order.
Over a short period of time, we will cover a wide range of topics—from “How to Prolong the Life of Cut Flowers” to “How to Create Master Class Floral Arrangements”. We will send you before the beginning of a class electronic files with the theory of floral design and information about opening and operating your own business , so you could do some study at home. During classes, every day you will have 8-hours workshops, working with fresh flowers. You will take home all your creations.

Our complete intense training in floral design consists a session of 3 of 2-day courses – total of 6 days, 48 hours. You can take a 2-day course at a time or 6-day session of courses at once.

To save, take the 6-day session of course and get a $150 refund.

If you would like to try yourself in floral design, take our 4-hour European Bouquet class – a part of the complete training program. We also recommend this class for all who loves arranging fresh cut flowers. You will get acquainted with our school, teaching methods and also get familiar with commercial kinds of flowers at the wholesale floral market and lean how to prolong life of cut flowers.

If you are going to like the trial class, just stay with the group for the entire session of 3 courses.
