Classical Chinese gardens, praised as "silent poems and three-dimensional paintings", are a profound and significant part of traditional Chinese culture, carrying the beauty of nature and the wisdom and knowledge that ancient scholars pursued.

Starting from the four major elements of gardens - mountains, rivers, plants and architecture, this event will offer participants a preliminary understanding of the constituent parts of Chinese gardens. Through analysis and interactive explanations, participants will gain fresh insight into the saying that characterize Chinese gardens as "Nature's gift, but cultivated by man."

At this event, facilitators will use ultralight clay to teach participants how to make sand table models of gardens. Through making, arranging and combining the basic elements of gardens, they will learn Chinese gardening skills and finally present their beautiful dream homes through their works.

The exhibition "On Gardens–Cultural Relics in Beijing's Famous Classical Gardens" co-organized by the Management Center of Parks and the Capital Museum, originally planned to open to the public from May 18, 2019 to October 7, 2019, will be extended to November 3, 2019 due to popular demand.
