Name of creator
Begun in 1954, the Athabasca Art Club was one of 52 community art classes in Alberta taught by Professor Harold Wohlforth of the University of Alberta Extension Department. In 1968 the club became a member of the Alberta Community Art Club Association. The Art Club originally met in the home economics room at the high school, moving to the basement of the Stucco School in 1958. In 1969 they relocated to a room in the Brick School. A Centennial Ball was held by the Athabasca Art Club in May, 1967. By 1980 the enrollment was low and there were no further records until there was a brief revival of the club from 1989 to 1992.
