Balloon Decorating 101 & 102

These courses are the foundation of learning balloon decorating. Beginning with the fundamentals of Classic Balloon Décor you will learn how to enhance the atmosphere of any event. Decorate weddings, birthdays, trade shows, grand openings, bar/bat mitzvahs, sweet sixteen, anniversaries, quinceañeras, proms, sporting events, concerts, corporate events and many others.

Our balloon decorating classes will teach you everything you need to know to start offering this distinctive decor to your clients. You will learn how to create several types of balloon columns, balloon arches, balloon canopies, balloon centerpieces, balloon walls, and balloon sculptures

We offer balloon decor classes as an aspect of event decorating while also following the formal principles of design.

Classes are taught in our own state of the art facility with its own full sized hall that allows you to learn hands on with actual full scale projects.

The anatomy for creating beautiful décor:

Guidelines for composition and how to combine all of the elements in your décor

The Principles and Elements of Design:

Every element in a room from colors to textures to patterns needs to be cohesive. The idea is to maintain a sense of harmony, after all of the coordinating and contrasting elements are put together.

We teach you how to understand the color wheel and use various color combinations to your advantage. Color, more than any other feature, can change a design dramatically because it evokes emotion and can affect people's mood. The key is to create color harmony that reflects back to the theme. Offering stimulating color combinations to your clients will increase your sales and your clients’ confidence in you décor. In addition, we teach different pattern, styles, formulas and layouts for efficient designs. Everyone starts here, and once you have these components mastered you can move on to more creative and challenging works of art.

Balloon Sculptures

From small intricate stick figures to large mesmerizing topiaries, we teach balloon sculptures from start to finish.

Our sculpture class includes the process of making 3-D framing, explanations of formulas, sketching tools and a great reference manual to take home. This class surpasses every student’s expectations and is an experience you wont find at any balloon convention. While conventions are great for simple balloon projects the balloon sculpture classes always fall short because they seldom have hands on training or enough time to build a sculpture from start to finish.

We also include distortion techniques in the class. WE do not teach the same things you find for free in manufactures websites or other sites. Our manuals are written by our instructors and are not sold anywhere.
Let us teach you that how to do Spectacular sculptures, just as you have always dreamed about!
