There was a guided tour through classrooms, question and ~nswbi' sessions and, finally and a '~end'off choir presentation of "1 Am a Child." Floral Design: Grows at Lehman Continued from pg. 3B the same kind of flow- ers and the same kind of vases," Reeves said. "Now we are doing the real ones and the walk-through will be on the same day, so it will be a very quick thing." While some students enjoyed sketching out his/her ideas, the most anticipated part is work- ing in the lab, Reeves said. Each student is given full range with their design once they understand the basics, such as which flowers go best together, and if the student can complete a conceptual sketch. "It's the same with graphic design, when I get to watch their creativity come out and give them the freedom to just do what they want," Reeves said. "I just give them fowers and the vases and let them come up with everything else." Valencia said the hard- est part of floral design is cutting the floral foam to exact measurements. Even so, she said she feels pride in turning her sketches into a reality. "When you experiment, you realize designing is really fun to do," she said. The course can be ap- plied as a fine art credit and students can become a certified floral designer with the American Insti- tute of Floral Designers. The district aids in the cost of certifications for students in CTE pro- grams. While Valencia may not go straight into floral de- sign, she said the course would always give her a tim backup. "In the future it would be a good skill to have and be able to do some- thing fun," Valencia said.
