Pawtucket Times - - VALLEY -

CUM­BER­LAND — The Cum­ber­land Pub­lic Li­brary has two op­por­tu­ni­ties com­ing up for area teens to show­case their art skills.

Teen Art Show­case for grades 6-12: Dead­line, Oct. 8. In honor of Oc­to­ber’s Teen Read Week, the li­brary hopes to show­case teen art to fit this year’s theme, “Un­leash Your Story!” Teens must de­sign the art­work that would be the book cover of their bi­og­ra­phy. The art­work can in­clude text such as the ti­tle of the bi­og­ra­phy, or it can just be the vis­ual art­work. The piece should be no big­ger than 9-by-12 inches and can’t be three­d­i­men­sional. En­tries can be dropped off from Sept. 18 to Oct. 8. The li­brary will dis­play work in the Teen Cen­ter for the month of Oc­to­ber and raf­fle off a $25 Blick gift card to par­tic­i­pants. Please drop off art­work at the Teen Cen­ter or the Ref­er­ence Desk of the li­brary, lo­cated on the sec­ond floor.

Lions Club Peace Poster Con­test, ages 11-13: Dead­line, Nov. 3. The Lions Club is host­ing its an­nual Peace Poster Con­test for youth, this year with the theme “The Fu­ture of Peace.” In­ter­ested youth should de­sign a poster that fits their in­ter­pre­ta­tion of the theme and can drop off at the li­brary. All par­tic­i­pants will have to fill out an ap­pli­ca­tion with their en­try, and full rules and guide­lines can be picked up at the li­brary Teen Cen­ter or Ref­er­ence desk on the sec­ond floor. En­tries for this con­test will be dis­played in the Hay­den Cen­ter in De­cem­ber. Teens who’d like some help de­sign­ing their poster can par­tic­i­pate in a poster­mak­ing work­shop on Wed­nes­day, Oct. 11, at 3 p.m. The li­brary will pro­vide all ma­te­ri­als.

For more in­for­ma­tion on th­ese art pro­grams, call the li­brary’s Teen Cen­ter at 333-2552, ext. 6.
