Floral Art Society meeting features multimedia presentation

Islamabad
The Floral Art Society of Pakistan (FASP), Islamabad-Rawalpindi Chapter, held its monthly meeting at the Serena Hotel featuring a multimedia presentation conducted by most senior member of the society, Farhana Azim, titled ‘The Lines that form the Design.’
The meeting was attended by members and their guests, with hopes that the latter would be so intrigued by this particular art form that they would join the group! Members had been asked to bring along an arrangement so that it could be critiqued on its composition as far as lines are concerned so there were many beautiful ones on display.
The meeting commenced with the recitation of the Holy Quran and reading of the minutes and other business by secretary, Sarwat Aslam.
Farhana began by explaining different forms of line in a design, elaborating multiple aspects of an arrangement and how the design in mind should first be drawn on paper to see if it looked balanced. She took the audience on a learning experience through visuals of different steps in building up a design, emphasising the incorporation of different textures and pointing out how various shapes and forms balance and compliment each other.
Speaking about how flower arrangement has evolved into an art form, where one gets a free hand to be innovative and creative, she said the different shapes found in plant material provide variety to the arranger to utilize them in creating any form of design.
The presentation was an effort to guide the members to develop that eye that sees the line in the design and conforms to it.
After the talk, members were asked to critique their own creations of floral art, an interesting exercise which was more of a learning experience, as one by one, each floral composition was also discussed by other members as they practiced what they had learned about the different lines in the design of an arrangement.
