Unlike the public and commercial 798 Art District in Beijing, Caochangdi artist village is different and more private. The community is made up of prestigious freelance artists whose artworks have been sold to galleries in China and abroad. CCC arranges this tour through its connections, making appointments with some famous artists (including painters, sculptors, photographers and artists dedicated to the genre of performance) and visit their homes to learn their lives and artistic aspirations.

CCC's artists' home/studio Visit
CCC arranges this tour through its connections, making appointments with some prestigious artists (including painters, sculptors, photographers and artists dedicated to the genre of performance) and visit their homes/studios (not public galleries), learn their lives and artistic aspirations, and have a chat. (CCC guide helps interpret).

After the tour, you are welcome to stay longer in the village and drink coffee in a nice coffee shop or eat in the restaurant (there are some good Chinese and western restaurants) and arrange your own transportation back to the city.

Caochangdi will be 20 minutes' drive from CCC. Meet at the China Culture Center to board the coach. The coach will return to CCC after the tour.
