Shizhong district of Zaozhuang city, East China's Shandong province, has been dedicated to preserving and passing down the city's rich cultural legacy. A number of folk artists have been engaged by the district government to teach traditional crafts at local primary schools.

Courses featuring dough figurines, operas and paper cutting are available at schools in the district, offering a great opportunity for children to learn from direct experience.

The local government supports traditional crafts to be introduced to the younger generation at an early age, making schools the perfect platform.
