Naturally, students are immersed in a multicultural learning environment within a truly international University, preparing them to thrive as global citizens. The School’s active collaborations with professionals and the architecture and design industry also broaden students’ horizons and enhance opportunities in securing jobs as architects, designers, and design entrepreneurs.
Turning head over heels when joining the sculpting class at Parsons School of Design, New York, where she began early to study art. KLAIRUNG ATTANATHO has found herself fond of ‘clay’ as the magic substance that is pliable but holds the shapes which generate the absolute beauty of real light and shade, and that was the turning point of her life – from accounting and management field to the world of art and design, especially in three-dimensional form. After receiving the other bachelor and master degrees in fine art and design from Australia, she had performed her career as a sculptor along with the university lecturer in Bangkok since then. She was involved in a variety of exhibitions in USA, Australia, and Thailand. Her work is currently represented in many art galleries in Bangkok. She is seeking to leverage her passion and expertise in the role of lecturer at School of Architecture and Design, Assumption University.
In addition to all the happenings, events and exhibitions, Klairung had the greatest opportunities of her life to present the sculpture ‘Khun Thong Dang’ to His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej The Great and to present buffaloes and goat sculptures to Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn.
