Calendar of Events


SCAN offers a variety of educational opportunities for artists of all skill levels:

  Each spring and fall we sponsor a series of one-day workshops with
     professional artists.

  As member interest indicates, we sponsor week-long workshops or
     weekly classes. All events are open to the public.

  "Drop-in" sketch sessions with professional models are a popular
      feature held monthly except in December. These sessions meet
      9:30AM to 12:30PM on the fourth Wednesday of month except
      in November. The date in November is subject to change based on
      holidays. The fee is $7 per session. No registration is required.

  An Open Studio for painting and drawing is available to members
     every month (except in February and December). The studio is open
     1:00PM to 4:00PM on the second Wednesday of the month for
     individual or group activities. The fee is $5 per session. No
     registration is required.

  As part of our mission in education, SCAN provides scholarships
     each spring to outstanding graduating seniors who have been
     accepted at an art school. 

All classes and workshops meet at the Meeting House in Newtown unless otherwise indicated. [Map and directions]
