Biografie

<p>The St. Albert Arts and Crafts Guild, a non-profit society, was founded in 1961 and registered under the Societies Act in 1962. The founding members saw a lack of art and cultural programming and facilities in the community and strived to fill that gap. Originally, children's classes were offered for free in the Community Hall. All funds for the organization were raised through fundraising efforts and nominal fees for the adult-oriented courses. <p>The purpose of the Guild is to:;<li>Foster awareness and appreciation of arts and crafts within the community</li>;<li>Provide opportunity for residents to practices their crafts</li>;<li>Provide instruction in various arts at various skill levels</li>;<li>Provide exhibition opportunities</li></ul>;<p>The Guild grew quickly and eventually acquired their own studio building. Until 1977 the Guild ran all visual arts programs in St. Albert. In 1976 the Guild had a thousand people registered for classes. <p>When the St. Albert Place opened with its extensive facilities it was decided to dissolve the Arts and Crafts Guild. The Guild was replaced by separate guilds representing the various arts forms: painters, weavers, potters, etc. The Laubental Council was formed to coordinate the efforts of the various guilds.</p>
