Mit fogunk csinálni?

When Covid-19 started, and the social isolation came along, I decided to reinvent myself and transfer my passion online to connect with a broader community.

I see floral design as a branch of beaux-arts. In fact, flowers can touch us as much as paintings do; they influence the vibes of a space, and they bright up our mood. Nonetheless, floral art is still far from being recognized in its cultural value from the broad audience; let's discover it together through my unique vision within a creative, judgement-less, and inspiring context.

The experience consists of 3 parts:

1) I will show a floral painting and go over its formal elements, and the story of the painter who made it. During this phase, I will teach you how to look at any painting with a particular “observer method”, to capture the artwork's beauty at best.
2) After that, we’ll make the flower arrangement inspired by the painting! This is the longest part of the workshop, where I’ll share all the basics of floristry, plus some fun facts about flowers and techniques.
3) I will conclude the workshop showing some pics of my favorite botanical artists that inspire my art practice, and even a personal project that taught me how to use creativity as a form of resilience.

Flowers have changed my life when I moved to California from Italy. The nature’s gifts, such as fallen petals and bougainvillea trees, would bright up my day in the unfamiliar city. Being able to appreciate floral beauty around myself made San Francisco a sweet spot for me.

After 8 years of experience in the art field, during which I curated and exhibited in 10+ art shows in Milan, Melbourne and San Francisco, and I published an art book ("M. R. Ballestra, a Phenomenology of Posthuman", Mimesis Editor, Italy), I decided to focus on floristry developing professional skills in 3 different arranging styles: Wild, Traditional and Modern.
Now, I create unique designs for VIP clients (Millennium Tower, 4 Season Hotel, Intercontinental Hotel, Marriott, La Mar, and many more).
My clients describe my works as "incredible pieces of art".

An unexpected magical experience. I dove into the art world and gained the foundational understanding in sculpting a beautiful art piece through flower arrangement. I’m not as intimated to make my own arrangements and build on my skills to make them my own. Wonderful class Elena! I can tell you really connect with your work. 🌷

This was a great experience. I felt that I learned a lot about Elena's prior experience and passion for floral design. She worked very hard to personalize instruction and connected the floral design back to the art world. I'm looking forward to taking a class with her again in the future.

Elena is a wonderful artist and shared her techniques with us. We all made our flower arrangements and found out many of the 'tricks of the trade'. I now have beautiful flower arrangements all over my home.

I love beautiful flower arrangements but can never pinpoint exactly what makes one stand out from others. In this experience, I learned the key elements of making a beautiful arrangement, and I especially loved how Elena's background as an art curator influences her design. To me, a beautiful flower arrangement is indeed a piece of art. Thank you for a fun and engaging experience.

wow, what a great afternoon with Elena, all the way around at 360. She taught the techniques of composing a floral arrangement, she explained the different types of flowers for the type of composition one wants to create, she included her personal tips and secrets and what works best in certain situations but most of all she connected her passion for flowers with her deeper love of art and in the end each of us created a piece of art with flowers. She was warming , friendly and tried to stimulate the creative part of each of us and thru it all it was fun and very interesting to hear and share the comments of the others. Would definitely recommend this experience to anyone, specially those not lovers of floral compositions ,like myself, because there is much to learn with looking at a flower. Last but not least Elena told us how she started this love for flowers and shared with us some rare and beautiful flowers and their history and painters that have expressed themselves with flowers Amazing experience.
