SCAN was founded in 1971 by Larry Newquist and seven
others to fulfill a cultural need in Newtown and surrounding communities. SCAN
has met continuously since then and now has over 300 members. While we have
Newtown in our name, our members come from all over Western Connecticut and the Hudson Valley of New York.
Our mission is art education, and each spring, in honor
of our founder, SCAN provides
scholarships to outstanding graduating seniors who
have been accepted at an art school.
SCAN is managed by a Board of Directors and five
officers: president, vice-president, treasurer, recording secretary and
membership secretary. At our annual meeting each May, members receive a report
of the previous year's activities and vote for next year's officers.
SCAN is a non-profit organization
