Lacquer art is the essence of Chinese culture; however the teaching of lacquer art is unpopular due to the complicated production process. There is little opportunity for primary and secondary school students to access relevant knowledge, and this has resulted in a weak foundation of Chinese lacquer art knowledge. This study researched the lacquer art teaching in primary and secondary education and exerted digital information resources to explore a new learning mode. This study measured the teaching outcomes and summarized the advantages and disadvantages of the teaching methods based on the author’s participatory observations and students’ after-class questionnaire feedback. The most significant aspect of the study was the hope that Chinese teenagers could have a comparatively early acquaintance of the cultural knowledge for lacquer art and provide more positive social factors for the inheritance and development of future lacquer design.
