From the folks who brought you the BOOM VT Drum Festival… here comes POP! 

This summer Inclusive Arts Vermont will Paint on Pine and you’re invited to be a part of the creative magic. Join us on Saturday, August 13 from 12-3 p.m. for a joyous day to celebrate community and support accessibility for people with disabilities.

POP is a paint-a-thon fundraiser for Inclusive Arts Vermont. Formerly VSA Vermont, Inclusive Arts Vermont has been using the magic of the arts to make our state more accessible for people with disabilities since 1986. We do that through arts education, training, and exhibition programs for more than 30,000 Vermonters annually. 

At POP, teams will paint canvases live during the 3-hour time frame. After the event, the canvases will be delivered to local businesses and galleries. Teams can be anywhere from 1-4 people, and each team needs to raise a minimum of $250 to participate. There will be prizes for the team that fundraises the most!

The event will also feature a giant community canvas, where passersby can make their mark and try out our accessible art materials. There will be live music and drumming, honoring the legacy of the BOOM VT Drum Festival. Food and drink will be available for purchase at nearby businesses.

  • (POP Sponsor) Be a sponsor! Sponsor the event and align your business with us as we get the word out to our statewide community. Check out the guide for sponsorship opportunities and benefits.
  • (POP Team) Get a Team Together! Grab some friends, colleagues, family members, neighbors, and make a team. Together you’ll fundraise and on the day of you’ll collaborate to paint a canvas. We’ll provide a canvas, basic acrylic paints, and brushes. Each team member will receive a POP t-shirt.
  • (POP by) Drop by to paint and explore! Not part of a team? That’s totally ok. Come by during the event and help us paint a giant community canvas. We’ll have accessible art supplies and smocks for all visitors. 
  • (POP Collector) Buy a painting! After the event, we will auction off the art to go back into the community. Buy a piece for your business, home, or for a community organization that you love.
