The China Academy of Art (CAA) and the government of Xiaoshan district in Hangzhou, Zhejiang province, signed a cooperation agreement on Sept 3 to build the CAA's Xianghu campus in Xiaoshan.

The CAA already runs the Nanshan, Xiangshan, and Liangzhu campuses in Hangzhou as well as the Zhangjiang campus in Shanghai's Pudong district.

According to the agreement, the Xianghu campus, to be located near the picturesque Xianghu Lake in western Xiaoshan district, will mainly house CAA's traditional Chinese painting and calligraphy education programs.

The Xianghu Lake scenic area is a China National Tourist Resort and a national 4A-grade tourist attraction. It is expected to become a cradle for most promising artists and traditional Chinese culture.
