Oudoor activities include Kayaking at Felix Neck in Edgartown and visiting the animals and plants at the Farm Institute in Katama.
We partner with Featherstone Center for the Arts to offer a variety of art classes in painting, drawing, collage, and pottery. Our most recent art show, hosted by The Vineyard Playhouse Art Space, raised over $1,000 for VIP, The Vineyard Playhouse, and the individual VIP artists.
We love to get down and boogie! Several times a year, VIP hosts themed Potluck Dances. Everyone brings a dish to share at dinner and then we dance the night away to a local band or DJ.
Several of our members compete regularly in the Special Olympics. Those of us not competing like to cheer them on and share in physical activities like bowling, swimming, kayaking, and walking.
During the off-season, VIP members attend drama club hosted at The Vineyard Playhouse. Director MJ Bruder Monafo teaches us how to approach texts from Tennessee Williams to Shakespeare through improv games and theater exercises. Our members also perform locally in shows at The Vineyard Playhouse.
VIP sponsers and hosts trips off of Martha's Vineyard to places like Boston and New York. Previous activities have included Whale-watching, a Broadway show, and a trip to the Boston Science Museum.
