Basic Floral Designs

Our Club has started a Novice Class and the emphasis is to teach them the basic concepts of simple designs. We have a separate schedule for this group and after two years and blue ribbons in that class, they graduate to the Schedule created for the entire club.  At this time it seems important to show them photos that depict a simple floral design and begin teaching the techniques for the horizontal, vertical, triangular, crescent, circular, and Hogarth curve design.  I scanned the Internet for basic designs and diagrams. I will include these photos below.  The designers names are unknown.

Triangle design:

The next section is the Crescent design

The next is the Hogarth curve:
