Description

Rittners Floral School is one of the longest running programs of its kind in North America. Family owned and operating as a floral educational center for seventy years with the third generation of Rittners still actively involved operating and teaching in our school. Around long enough to have the background, experience and resources to do what we do extremely well, yet still quite dynamic in our teaching styles, floral art styles and approach.

We are a real floral design school, not a flower shop running classes out of a back room or basement, a part time program in a retail or wholesale location or a designer running from one city to another to run temporary "schools."

Our teaching is done by staff that include a Doctorate in Education. That makes our floral art courses unique. Our level of teaching is outstanding. Excellent teaching skills make a difference in your ability to learn and enjoy the process. The way floral art is taught makes a big difference in how easily you will learn. And our courses have been designed to give you amazing value.

We believe that a floral school must have more than work benches and a pretty display of flowers. We know our priorities. It is in teaching floral art to our students not in offering the occasional class, in-between filling holiday orders or as a hobby.

At Rittners, we know that our business is to teach you floral designing. Unlike a retail or wholesale floral outlet, we are not here to sell you flowers, containers or other products. We are here to teach you an amazing art form and to provide you with a fun and memorable educational experience.

Our Courses are based on live demonstrations followed by hands-on workshop designing. Our school also routinely uses multimedia approaches and the latest technologies to enhance your learning experience.

    Loved this workshop! Dr. Steve is very knowledgeable and engaging. He provided just the right level of information, not too much or too little. I look forward to pursuing future learning opportunities at his floral design school. The experience was well-worth the fee. It was a most enjoyable workshop, right in the heart of Back Bay!

    We all had a great time. One suggestion would be to provide chairs for the students to sit while listening to the lecture component of the course.
