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.
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
