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 monthly
     feature (except in November and December). These sketch sessions meet
     from 9:30AM to 12:30PM on the fourth Wednesday of the month. 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]
