Welcome toThe Sandpiper Studio

The Sandpiper Studio is the dedicated art studio of Wirral artist and tutor Julie McLean BA Hons who has been teaching adults in a variety of drawing and painting media for more than fifteen years.

The Sandpiper Studio is set in a peaceful countryside location at Foxes Farm and Riding School on the Wirral Peninsular which is home to some of the finest parks, nature reserves and coastal scenery in Britain.

The large, bright studio provides the ideal space for painting with friends in a relaxed and informal atmosphere. Small class sizes ensure individual learning needs can be met and all abilities from beginners to advanced level are welcome.

Julie teaches weekly art classes from Monday to Thursday during term time and visiting artists, from the UK and abroad, provide specialist tuition in workshops and demonstrations throughout the year.
