 The Purcell Public Library is giving local teens and tweens a chance to explore some of their artistic side with its upcoming “Printmaking for Teens/Tweens” activity at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, August 10, at the library, 919 N. Ninth St.

Attendees will get an introduction to printmaking and design. While the program is aimed toward people with little or no printmaking experience, it is a chance for those who have had some practice to learn something new as well.

The activity is for ages 10 to 18, and basic computer skills or a parent present to assist with the computer portion of the event are needed.

Space is limited, so advance registration is required.

For more information, visit the library, call 405-527-5546 or go online to www.pioneerlibrarysystem.org/purcell.
