    Administrative history

    The Studio ’71 Art Club was founded in 1971 in Bon Accord, Alberta by Jean Chubb. Jean arranged for the first class, Painting 1, to be held at the Bon Accord Community School. Instruction was obtained through the University of Alberta’s Department (now Faculty) of Extension. The Club incorporated in August of 1982 in order to receive a provincial grant through the Sturgeon Recreation Board. At this time, the official name of the Club was changed to Studio ’71 Art Club (Bon Accord), and its stated purpose was to provide art education for its members and to foster art appreciation throughout the community. The organization was governed by a Board of Directors comprised of a president, vice-president, secretary, treasurer, auditor, and directors.

    The Club continued to host a total of thirty-three art classes between 1971 and 1992. Along with twenty-six shows, including eleven Harvest Day Shows and two Alberta Community Arts Club Association (Northern Zone) Shows. The Club also began hosting monthly meetings at the homes of members in 1987. In 1992, funding from the Sturgeon Recreation Board was terminated, causing the Club’s instructional fees to increase and their membership to drop.

    In 2002, the members on the Board unanimously agreed to forward the Club’s remaining surplus to Sturgeon Composite High School to help finance opportunities for students to attend summer art programs at Red Deer College. The Club voluntarily dissolved on February 19, 2003.
