Spring 2012 - Buckeye District

One section that often

One section that often raises questions in a rose show, is the modern classes. The ARS Guidelines for Judging Rose Arrangements lists 30 modern arrangement styles, and these can vary in size, construction, dimension and many other factors such as transparency, movement and refl ectiveness. The second part of the program focused on selected aspects of modern arrangements. Gary demonstrated and discussed some of the elements such as linear direction, textural emphasis and forms that may emerge in a sculptural design. He showed examples of basic shapes of containers (the circle, square, rectangle, triangle, columnar, and combinations of these forms). Specifi c “mechanics” were pointed out that are used inside the containers to hold the fl owers and foliage in place, such as kenzans (sharp pointed needleholders), crumpled chicken wire, sticks, straws, stones, oasis and other materials. Concurrent with the discussion of modern design, Teresa volunteered to build a modern style design with Lew – and in view of the audience! At a previous District meeting, she mentioned her desire to learn to arrange, but was hesitant to get started; this was her chance to begin her “journey into arranging.” Teresa was given a standard size modern, red container, with oasis as the mechanics for the design. She selected the fl owers and plant materials with very little prompting. With reference to the earlier discussion on linear direction and the importance of texture and color, she began the design. With minimal suggestions, she decided on the placement of the materials, and with a few fi nal touches, fi nished her fi rst design. The audience heartily applauded Teresa’s courage of going through this creative process in front of an audience, as well as her attractive design - a tall, colorful arrangement in a modern red container. The photograph (#4) of Teresa with her fi rst design “speaks volumes.” When asked about having volunteered to do this demonstration, she said “It was scary, but so much fun!” She also asked two very important questions: “How do you know when to stop putting materials in to your arrangement?” and “How do you know when to stop?” To the experienced arranger, the answers relate to the application of the elements and principles of design, creativity, simplicity, focus and meaning and certainly experience; however, these questions are insightful for us to consider when working with beginning arrangers. One of the main objectives of the District arrangement programming is to involve beginners in learning about arranging, and to enjoy and feel comfortable for doing creative arrangements. A proposal from the District Arrangement Committee is to outreach in each of our local societies, and encourage and emphasize creating arrangements. We are requesting to have a designated contact person in each local organization to serve as an arrangement coordinator. This will assist us in developing a more active program throughout the entire District. We hope to attract more beginning arrangers from the Buckeye District, and look forward to teaching and working with them in the near future. Happy Arranging! “Teresa Barnhart and Her First Arrangement” 12
