Our Artists

Creativity is an innate ability that we all possess and it’s important that we enable the participants to embrace their creativity and enjoy the creative process regardless of the results. It’s about having fun, being in the moment and exploring their creative side. As artists we truly believe that there is a creative side in all of us.

All of the artists that join us have different backgrounds, skillsets and specialisms in art and we all share the belief that art should be accessible to everyone and can have an extremely positive impact on people’s lives.

The Creative Minds community is supportive, inspiring and collaborative and we communicate with each other daily via our private community groups. A day won’t go by when you’re not inspired and humbled by the art sessions and the art work created by the participants across the country.

Traceys’ Story

To be able to say that I enjoy my job is such a great feeling. I’m able to spend more time with family and friends as I can choose when I work. My work/life balance is much more improved and I’m so much happier in myself.

Being able to work doing something I love was what caught my eye initially. I also loved the idea of the artist community where you can share and learn new ideas.

I found the start-up cost was reasonable, along with the monthly fee. With the training, information and materials provided you are given a good foundation to begin building your business at whatever pace is suited to you.

At the start, I was able to combine my current job with my Creative Minds art sessions – which was ideal for my situation. When the time was right, I could then focus completely on my art sessions.
