Rachele Hogan and her four sons — Dean, Lewis, John and Philip — are Ormond Memorial Art Museum’s featured family from the museum’s Sept. 1 Free Family Art Night event.
The family moved to Ormond Beach four years ago and "are always looking for things around town to do as a family," according to a statement from OMAM. While they have visited the museum gardens many times and enjoy the mini art gallery in the park, often contributing their own artwork, the family attended the Free Family Art Night for the first time on Sept. 1.
The family loved the event, the museum statement reads, especially as the youngest son has leukemia.
"So getting to do something free and together as a family means everything to us right now," Rachele Hogan said. "We will definitely be back in October."
The museum’s Family Art Night takes place from 5:30-7 p.m. on most first Fridays of the month. All art supplies are provided, and the program is sponsored in part by the Women United Volusia Chapter.
The next program is scheduled for Oct. 6.
