The Van Wezel Foundation has received a $10,000 grant from the Suncoast Credit Union Foundation to support the Van Wezel's virtual Bilingual Family Art Nights. The events serve to provide children, caregivers, and families in the Hispanic/Latinx communities with targeted learning objectives, while also providing them with tools and lessons they can continue at home to expand learning.

During virtual Bilingual Family Art Nights, children are exposed to an artistic discipline alongside an academic or social-emotional learning competency, providing multiple means for understanding, strengthening learning in both arenas. It is designed to pair a variety of artistic disciplines (dance/movement, visual arts, drama, and creative writing) with English Language Arts and STEM subjects, with all materials now translated in Spanish.
