Shuhe

About the Artist

Shuhe has been a professional mask maker & performer since 1998 & has worked with many local theaters including Tears of Joy, NWCT, OCT & many civic arts organizations. He has taught thousands of students all around the western US & has developed a unique residency which incorporates the basics of sculpting, eye to hand coordination & fundamental stage skills.

Teaching Philosophy

Shuhe believes in challenging every student's mind through both their intellect & creativity, in a process that requires a structured approach & also allows for individual interpretation. His main goals are to encourage young people to truly observe what they see by incorporating both shape & color into their mask creation, & to increase self-confidence by succeeding at a “tricky” project & through public performance. His favorite part of teaching is the process of discovery for both the kids & himself.

"Shuhe gave individual attention to each child. He kept students focused and productive, and all were successful." --3rd grade teacher, PPS

Animal Masks: Creation to Performance Less

Mask maker and actor Shuhe delights students and teachers alike as he guides classes through the process of making and performing in animal masks. Students sculpt and use papier-mâché to create a mask in the likeness of an animal of their choosing, then bring it to life through voice and body movement. In a process that helps develop observation and artistic interpretation, Shuhe uses his experience as an actor to bring out individual creativity. The residency is tailored for specific grade levels and varies in length accordingly. It culminates in a small performance of an animal folktale or fable for peers or family.
