Who We Are

The Society of Creative Arts of Newtown, Inc. (SCAN) is a non-profit association of artists from Western Connecticut and surrounding areas. Our goal is to support the artist and promote the visual arts.

For over 40 years, SCAN members - artists of all skill levels and art enthusiasts - have been sharing knowledge of a variety of media, including watercolor, oil, acrylic, pastel, graphics, mixed media, and sculpture.

Our activities include:

  Twice-monthly demonstration meetings featuring professional artists

 Classes & Workshops with practicing artists

 Informal “drop in” sketch sessions with models and other educational

 An Open Studio for members' individual or group activities

  Several art shows each year

  Annual trip in Spring to visit the American Watercolor Society Show
    as well as Chelsea and SoHo i
n New York City

Each month we publish SCAN INK, a newsletter for our members, which provides complete details about our programs. Members also receive several exclusive benefits detailed on our membership page.

We meet in the historic Newtown Meeting House on Main Street at the Flag Pole (Route 25).
