  • I loved this course! I've been interested in design since I was a young girl and have had opportunities to practice but needed the introduction to the business side of design to really get me started. I have completed the course and am so happy that I took the time to enroll in NYIAD.

  • This course taught me so much. I wanted to be a floral designer but had absolutely no knowledge or experience and they gave me practical teaching and plenty of practice with the design exercises. I definitely recommend taking this course whether you're just wanting to learn more about a hobby or want to pursue a career in floral design!
