Welcome to The Sandpiper Studio, the classroom and workspace of artist and tutor Julie Mclean.
It's great to be running full steam ahead again!
Our classes have returned to the full size of 10 students for each 3 hour session and we have even added an extra class on a Friday morning making a total of nine each week.
For more details see 'Art Classes'
Great news! the Wirral Open Studio Tour is back in action!
11th and 12th September 2021
10am to 5pm each day
Along with artists throughout Wirral Julie will be opening the studio doors to welcome you in.
There are paintings and art materials for sale plus an opportunity to browse through Julie's sketchbooks and class projects.
There is plenty of parking directly in front of the studio.
Summer is still with us for a little while yet, tempting us with country walks, picnics and of course en plein air painting.
Our painting days out and about on the Wirral have been very enjoyable for all student abilities, watch out for more to come in the autumn.
'As artists we are inspired by many things, often by our emotions and by using our senses; sight, sound, touch, smell and taste.
It may only be a small spark of inspiration but it is the start of a creative journey mixing ideas, observations and emotions with practical skills.
Your journey will be all the more enjoyable when you share it with others on the same path who may become lifelong friends.' JM
We have some wonderful, inspiring artists leading workshops in 2021 which are suitable for all abilities.
See our 'Workshops and Demonstrations' page for more information.
