GREENVILLE – The Greenville Public Library's Teen Programs are in full swing. Local artist Paul Ackley kicked off the summer with an Introduction to Drawing class on June 11. Students followed his instructions to create several interesting cartoons.

A graduate of the American Academy of Art in Chicago, Paul has been an active Editorial Cartoonist for over 30 years. In 2009 and 2010 he was awarded “Best Editorial Cartoonist” by the Ohio Associated Press. In 2010 he received the Good Citizen Award for his Editorial Cartoons from the Ohio House of Representatives. He is a proud tribal member of the Sokaogon Chippewa Community if Northern Wisconsin.

Next on the agenda is a free concert by DA Music Studios on June 22, 4 p.m., on the Library lawn. D.A. Music Studios teaches adults and children to play instruments such as guitar, bass guitar, drums, piano, violin, and school band instruments, as well as music theory and composition.
