This summer, study floral design online with world-famous master florists working in diverse styles in the Floral Art for Interiors certificate program at Pratt Institute’s School of Continuing and Professional Studies (SCPS). Every week in June, you can join a different floral design workshop and create beautiful designs with locally sourced flowers delivered right to your home.
Instructors include Ariella Chezar, Shane Connolly, and Bella Meyer. Chezar, the author of Seasonal Flower Arranging: Fill Your Home With Blooms, Branches, and Foraged Materials All Year Round, will give a workshop using flowers sourced from her farm in the Berkshires, highlighting her “nature-first” style. Connolly, the florist who brought massive trees into Westminster Abbey for the marriage of Prince William and Kate Middleton, will teach a class on sustainable flower design. Meyer, the Founder and Creative Director of fleursBELLA, will teach a workshop focusing on points of inspiration and formal structure for avant-garde floral designs, using classical music and her grandfather Marc Chagall’s work as examples.
While courses can be taken individually, participants can earn a Floral Art Certificate by successfully completing any three of the workshops listed below:
- Sustainable Floral Design
- Seasonal Flower Arranging
- A Wild Duet: A Celebration of the Arts via Foraged Materials
- Floral Art Through the Eyes of Master Artists
- From Ordinary to Extraordinary: Transform Store-Bought Bouquets.
Pratt SCPS provides high-quality credit and non-credit courses and programs to adult learners in a variety of subjects for educational advancement, career change, and enrichment.
