A 21-year-old female with disabled arms has learned painting after a seven-month course at a craftsman studio in North China's Hebei province.

Madina of Kazak ethnic group in Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region lost her hands due to frostbite when she was six-month-old.

With the help of her father and others, she successfully completed primary and middle schools.

In November last year, she came to a studio - Hebei Centennial Craftsman Wood Painting Studio - in Shijiazhuang, the capital city of Hebei, to learn techniques of painting on wooden materials.

After seven months of practice, she passed a skill assessment test and was hired by the studio as a painter.
