Surrey Life Feature


Creative Minds had a great year in 2014. Lots of Art Sessions were delivered, art work created and art projects completed and we received some amazing publicity in local and regional news. And in December 2014 we had an amazing feature in the Surrey Life Magazine Christmas Edition in time for the Christmas hols!

“Its fantastic publicity and recognition for Creative Minds to be featured in the Surrey Life Magazine, especially in the Christmas Edition which may have been seen by 1000’s of people” says James. James was interviewed in November by the magazines art editor Tinx Newton who has her own section in the magazine called Art Life where she reports on new exhibitions and profiles local artists.

Hydon Hill get creative!


James has been been visiting Hydon Hill, a Leonard Cheshire Care Home on the edge of Godalming for nearly 2 years now, and in that time they have created some fantastic artwork and sculptures together. The residents whom mostly have physical impairments and handicaps absolutely love and look forward to the Art Sessions delivered by James.

“We like to explore as many different mediums, materials and ideas as possible” says James, “At Hydon Hill I am very lucky to have some amazing staff like Robbie to help support me and the residents to create lovely art”. In the time that James has been visiting Hydon Hill they have created a lot of art in the Art Sessions and have completed some spectacular art projects. The most recent art projects completed at Hydon Hill have been some Halloween sculptures and a large Christmas Tree advent calendar.

Leonard Cheshire kindly posted an article about Hydon Hill and their creative efforts on the staff intranet for all to see! Take a look…Hydon Hill Artwork Halloween ere it is….
