Therapeutic Art Class

 Therapeutic Art Classes for Adults

My art classes are suitable for any ability – you don’t have to be good at art to do this class. The focus is on the ‘process’ rather than the end result, although you may surprise yourself of what you can achieve!

My mission is to inspire as many people as possible to take up art, and reap the benefits that creating art has for your mental health and wellbeing.

I can personally vouch from my own experience of suffering with anxiety and depression, how beneficial art can be in helping your mental health.

Creating art is a great way to relax. It provides a distraction, and gives your mind a chance to escape from your thoughts and troubles.

“Steph's art classes are as the name suggests, therapeutic. Totally immersive with no pressure. Steph herself is always bubbly and positive and always makes everyone feel welcome. I regularly do join the classes and also had one-to-ones with Steph. I highly recommend Stephs classes."

If you are a complete newbie to acrylic painting, or are just looking to improve, then my online classes may just be what you need!

My focus with all my classes is on the process and not the end result. The main thing is to enjoy yourself.  I don't want you to be worrying about how its going to look a the end, as that will only put pressure on yourself, and hinder your creativity!

How it works

Before each class I will send you the reference image for the session and a written process with step by step photos for you to print out. A list of materials and what colours you will need will also be provided. Don't worry if you don't have the exact colours that I use, there is plenty of room for some artistic licence - in fact I encourage you to put your own stamp on the process if you want to!

During the class I will talk you through each step as you paint along with me.

At the end of the class we have a little show and tell session, where we all show our creations to the group.

In this online class, we will be learning how to paint the VALUE Scale, followed by painting a simple study.  VALUE in painting terms is how dark or light something is. It is important to understand as when we paint we need to work out light and shadow. We will be painting a value scale of 9 ranging from black to white, with shades of greys in between.

Once you have completed your scale, you will draw an paint a simple study, putting to use your newfound knowledge!


The class will be roughly an hour and a half long.

"I can’t recommend ArtyFish enough for any event or if you just wanted to attend the therapeutic painting classes; I’ve now done both with brilliant results.

Steph recently put together back-back painting classes for my 40th birthday party, in the middle of a windy field and did a phenomenal job in organising everyone and ensuring they were encouraged and supported during their painting. All the guests had fun and thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. Great job!"
