- His second mentor was Tsai Hsueh-hsi (蔡雪溪), a professional painter who taught Kuo the basics of drawing and calligraphy, and how to frame and mount his paintings.
- In his later years, Kuo himself established a studio devoted to inspiring children to paint and enhance their appreciation for art. He often took his students to paint outdoors and gave individual feedback and instructions.
