Glastonbury School of Art is the perfect place to be creative and advance your talents in a relaxed and supportive environment. The courses give beginners a wonderful base to build up on as well as a great space for people with advanced skills or even artists to come together and share the passion of art.
I love the drawing and painting course with Ioannis and wouldn't want to miss it from my week. I can highly recommend this oasis of art in Glastonbury - stop by, view the beautiful art, get inspired and start growing as an artist yourself!

If you have ever wanted to learn how to draw and/or paint, Glastonbury School of Art is a fantastic place to go. I turned up as a complete beginner and was met by a smiling Antoniadis who's a fantastic, patient teacher. There's a lovely relaxed atmosphere in the studio. The lessons are great for all ages (teenagers upwards) and all abilities. The added bonus is that the lessons are very reasonably priced. I couldn't recommend it highly enough.

I am so grateful to Glastonbury School of Art! Ioannis is a great mentor, he shares his professional knowledge generously his with students in a way that few artists do. The space is a creative haven for me, it has helped me to keep on with my work and continues to nourish me as a human being.

I have very much enjoyed taking classes at Glastonbury School of ART. It has been an unexpected journey in uncovering the simple joy of expressingin this way. Ioannis Antoniadis is a first class teacher, encouraging with love, patience and practical skills in a playful way. If you are near Glastonbury I highly recommend you to uncover your talents, whether you are an absolute beginner or want to deepen your advanced skills.

I enjoyed my session so much that I was hooked and made a booking again for the very next day! Ioannis places much importance on learning the foundations of art and painting. He has a kind and sympathetic approach to delivering the best tips and guidance in working with different media, encouraging us to experiment with shape, light and colours including when to use different brush techniques for what effect. I learnt more in two classes than I have ever learnt from books or school! PS I know this is Glastonbury, but there were several times when I was so mesmerised in what I was doing it was similar to being in deep meditation. It brought me both immense inner peace and expansion of the mind. I highly recommend this indulgence!

I highly recommend this School of Art for beginners and professionals. I myself had zero knowledge in drawing or paintings whatsoever ... I've completed a full 5 day class and learned tremendously alot in a short period of time (tips and tricks)...
It's an honour to learn from great and humble man like Ioannis... he is one of the very few people I've met who is very inspiring, has great wisdom and integrity. It's a joy being your student and I will definitely return... To be continued....

Ioannis is simply a brilliant teacher. I have never been any good at art. I can’t even draw a stick man and I failed my art exams at school. I was hopeless. But thanks to Ioannis’ guidance, patience and maybe most of all his encouragement, I have my first ever painting framed on my living room wall. My family can’t believe me when I say I painted it. I take no credit at all for it.... in 3 lessons Ioannis taught me to paint..... and made it fun. My second piece is a even more complex and equally amazing to me.
I think apart from his obvious skill and ability to explain techniques in a clear and simple way, it was his implicit belief that I could do it, and kindly, laughing yet firm refusal to pander to me saying I couldn’t, that led me to learn to do something I thought I was born incapable of doing!
The Glastonbury School of Art is a sanctuary of calm and beauty, the work challenging and rewarding, the conversation interesting and I look forward to my hours there as a wonderful gift. Ioannis is an extraordinary artist, whose work is visually and soulfully beautiful and inspiring. And as a teacher he brings all those qualities to the lesson as well.

I just had my first class and I loved it. I am looking forward to more work shops at the Glastonbury School of Art.

I booked for a 3 hour lesson as a beginner. The tutor was informative supportive and patient from the start to the finish of the lesson. I'm am delighted at the new skills I have begun to develop in using charcoal and oil. Many thanks for this.
