This past fall, Concordia International School Shanghai was proud to have internationally renowned Chinese peasant painter Lu Yong Zhong as artist in residence. Lu worked directly with teachers and students in the classroom, sharing the history of Jinshan peasant paintings and demonstrating techniques used to create this important form of Chinese folk art. From 29 November to 8 December, a number of Lu’s original artworks were on display throughout the campus, and on 5 December, Lu invited the community to an interactive art experience, where participants were able to create their very own Chinese peasant paintings.

Lu Yong Zhong is a member of the Shanghai Artist Association and is a Shanghai Intangible Cultural Heritage bearer. Lu has devoted himself to the creation of peasant paintings, and has held individual exhibitions of his work in China, Japan, India, and Europe. His works have been widely collected by museums at home and abroad.
