We are a small, unique local charity, registered in 2014 (registration number 1157556) as a Charitable Incorporated Organisation. Flying Fish Artists through the use of art as therapy aim to enhance and promote the mental health of people in the Devon area, and specifically support the resilience and recovery of those experiencing mental ill health. We also aim to challenge perceptions of mental ill health through the work that we do

We support our members in their recovery from mental ill health by 
providing an art studio, which doubles as a meeting space, where our members meet regularly to paint and for our monthly members’ meetings. We provide art equipment, art education and general support for for all our members, encouraging them to use creative talents which often even they were unaware they had. We  support and inspire our members to produce artwork which integrates the members with the local community through exhibitions, events, open days, participation in festivals and accepting commissions.

We welcome membership from those who have experienced mental ill health. Some of our members had not painted before they joined us, and their artwork is now being publicly viewed and admired, helping our members to grow in confidence.
