The Ormond Memorial Art Museum held its Free Family Art Night July 11.

8-year-old John Grant decorated his coat of arms with the important things in life: Nerf guns and baseball.

“There’s a picture for reading and writing too,” Grant said. “I like these things.”

Grant was one of the many kids that participated in the Ormond Memorial Art Museum’s Free Family Art Night. This week’s craft was decorating a coat of arms.

“I’ve done this craft before” Artist Liaison Linda King said. “What they put in it is up to them. It could be their family or their pets.”

The kids also decorated their coat of arms with a motto and their family name.

“Since it’s the colored pencil show,” King said, “we’re doing most of the drawings in colored pencil. We’ve got sequins and pom-poms to make the shield pop.”
