After a successful stint during Angsana Laguna Phuket’s opening in December 2011, the family-friendly resort is pleased to welcome back the internationally acclaimed Australian artist and designer Christopher Hogan. Throughout the summer month of August, Mr. Hogan will conduct complimentary art classes at the resort’s popular Tree House Kids Club.
Christopher Hogan had previously created a Charity Mural Project to mark the opening of Angsana Laguna Phuket that raised two hundred thousand baht mainly through the generous participation of guests. The funds were used towards the Angsana Youth Artist scholarship which currently supports talented students, majoring in the faculty of arts at Ratchapat Phuket University. He also conducted art classes for young guests during the launch of the resort’s Tree House Kids Club and has been an Artist-in-Residence at the Laguna Phuket Summer Family Festivals, where he staged art classes for local schoolchildren and helped raise thousands of baht for Laguna Phuket’s community programmes.
Mr. Hogan, a specialist in marine-themed abstract paintings, will hold complimentary morning art classes for children visiting the Tree House Kids Club during the summer from 1 to 31 August 2013. His art classes are designed for children and teenagers of all ages. The children and aspiring artists will be exposed to the visual arts including sketching, painting and drawing.
David Hollmann, Director of Recreation at Angsana Laguna Phuket said, “During the launch of Tree House Kids Club in December 2011, the art class was a huge success. Children who visited the Kids Club had an amazing experience. Mr. Hogan’s popular art class was such a wonderful opportunity for children to explore their artistic side. Kids will be able learn while having a fun time during their holiday. By having such a renowned artist at our kids club, I hope that we are planting the seeds for the artists of tomorrow.”
