Visiting Artist Justin Rui Han Leads Color Workshop

During a two-day campus visit, visual artist Justin Rui Han spent time with student artists at the Holbrook Arts Center. With degrees from the Rhode Island School of Design and Brown University, Justin is a working artist currently based in Brooklyn. Hosted by visual arts teacher Kiernan Pazdar, Justin described his process and spoke about his work during a presentation in the Warner Gallery, where his piece “At Rest (Home Invasion)” is part of the current exhibition, Night Vision.  Following his talk, Justin visited the individual studio spaces of the Honors Painting class, taking time to engage with student artists and offer insights and technical tips. Justin also led a color workshop in painting and mixed media classes in which students were encouraged to think about how they see and express color in their own work.
Millbrook’s faculty of working artists and proximity to New York, Boston, and the Berkshires create opportunities for student artists to interact with established and up-and-coming creatives. As a painter in the early days of his professional career, Justin’s visit illuminated a path forward for Millbrook’s student artists.
