Art does not have to be a distant dream of real life. 435 International Art Village is the best example of a successful combination of artistic creation and everyday life. This place with no. 435 was an old house occasionally used for veteran training. Now efforts to redesign and renovate the space have turned it into one of the most popular art zones in Greater Taipei. Some of the architectural designs are from the 1960s， including the holystone flooring and special glass windows which have been preserved in the house， and has accommodated resident artists all over the world. The cultural environment here features amazing diversity and the results of exchanges among artists with different nationalities. These artists visit local high schools for art activities， which help art education to take root in campuses where the importance of art classes is usually ignored.
