Students Exhibit ‘Art of Floral Design’ Through Final Projects

From corsages ...

... to boots, students share their "spur"-of-the-moment inspiration

Against the natural backdrop of the Schneebeli Earth Science Center, Kierstin G. Steer, a technology management major from South Williamsport, adds her own touch of spring.

Understated elegance

Christine A. Fink’s “The Art of Floral Design” class affords students the opportunity to develop an appreciation for the history – as well as basic principles – of floral design. Students recently displayed their creativity in one of the final projects of the elective, interestingly blending contemporary styling with historical influences from the Egyptians, Greeks and Romans – and a little “western” flair thrown in for fun! With floral arrangements used to celebrate life’s events and milestones, it is not difficult to imagine one of these designs making an artful impact during prom season.
