As a guest of the incomparable St. Regis Beijing, relish in a rare family experience where local culture and art will be shared over an exciting full-day encounter hosted by Tom Pattinson. An expert on Chinese contemporary culture, former editor in chief of Time Out Beijing, founder of SURGE Art and curator of many leading exhibitions, Pattinson extends an invitation to join him for a family friendly art tour of Beijing. Begin with a trip to China’s largest art district 798 to learn about the 60-year history of the former factory. While discovering the area, you will see life-sized dinosaurs, 3D worlds of adventure, old steam engines, and you will walk across a raised skywalk where you can take in a full view of the old factory area. After, you will visit UCCA where your children can create their own artwork in the Creative Studio, followed by a private lunch in an old soldiers’ canteen. Then, visit artists in their studios in the nearby art communities of Caochangdi and Huantie where they will show the children how to create works of art with paint, ink or clay. You will also visit studios of established artists and some of the founding fathers of the contemporary art scene in China. After a full day, return to the hotel for a restful night’s sleep and then, in the morning, breakfast for the whole family awaits.
