Habiba, Zaid and Sammie Nadim are Ormond Memorial Art Museum’s featured family from the museum’s June 2 Free Family Art Night event.
The Nadim family — which is new to Florida, having moved from Canada — values creativity and the freedom of expression art provides, according to a statement provided to the Observer by art instructor Linda King.
This month’s art activity consisted of painting pet portraits inspired by artist George Rodriquez, famous for his “Blue Dog Series.”
“This was our first Family Art Night, and it certainly won’t be our last,” Habiba Nadim said.
While Sammie and Zaid Nadim came to paint a pet portrait, Habiba Nadim volunteered at the event to help the museum.
The museum’s Family Art Night takes place most first Fridays of the month from 5:30-7 p.m. All art supplies are provided, and the program is sponsored in part by the Women United Volusia Chapter.
The next program is scheduled for July 7.
