As a living fossil embedded among the concrete jungles and representative of Hakka culture, the Xipu New Residence offers a great environment for artistic sketching with its visionary appearance that connects the past with the present. For the program, the artists will lead villagers and kids for sketching, where the villagers can pose as models in their traditional costumes and kids from nearby can also be invited to join the sketching group. The sketching works will be published and shared as kids' paintings. Through interactions and communications between artists from all over the country and local villagers, the sketching activity also shares an extraordinary experience from cultural clash, complimenting and integration, making this multi-faceted district even more fascinating.
