  • Event
On 24 March, Guest Artist of the Chinese Academy of Oil Painting, Zhang Xiaopeng, will be invited to our live streaming lecture "Arts in the Cloud". She will guide students to learn about the five world-renowned art masters and appreciate their masterpieces.

Classics belong to everyone, but never belong to the mass. Everyone can walk into the classics only with an individual soul. Also, only when you start to be friendly with the classics, would you find yourself gradually moving away from the spiritual consumption of pure entertainment.
