RIDGEWOOD, N.J. — The Ridgewood Art Institute’s fifth summer session for young artists will begin in August.

Instructors Rebecca Leer and Joel Popadics have added drawing sessions and Diana Gibson is teaching an oil painting class.

“It is exciting to see the progress the young students make within one week,” Education Chairwoman Laura Paray said. “There is no better way to learn than from real-life set up.

“The landscape sketches help [students] see colors used to create atmosphere in an outdoor scene. Eventually they can paint outdoors using the information that is given and will help them translate the complicated outdoors into an understanding of colors and reasoning behind the palette of the Ridgewood Art Institute,” she said.
