A retired teacher from central China's Hubei Province recently returned to a local university to give lessons instructing students on how to make paper-cuts.
Huang Hong, 78, used to be a teacher at the School of Life Sciences at Hubei University in the city of Wuhan.
Huang has long been a folk artist, ever since she created her own style of paper-cutting around 30 years ago. She takes the lead in promoting the art among her students.
Although retired, Huang is still engaged in writing books and holding art exhibitions in universities for senior people and in different communities.
After demonstrating how to make a paper-cut, Huang patiently gives instructions to each student in detail. The teacher only rests for a couple of minutes during a one-and-a-half-hour lesson, students said.
Upon finishing the class, students rushed to help Huang go downstairs when she walks out of the classroom. Huang said, "I can do it. When I see students, I am full of energy and my pain disappears immediately."
