If you want to learn how to paint, you’ve come to the right place!

There’s a reason we’ve been in business teaching painting for 25 years:
Tiggy’s at crescent is a different kind of art studio.

If you have always wanted to learn how to paint but don’t think you are creative enough to enjoy painting, then you need to give Tiggy’s a try! Since 1994 we have been dedicated to teaching everyone how to paint in a fun and supportive environment. We teach concrete fundamental techniques and theory that can be applied to any painting to achieve the same levels of success. Better yet, you will emerge from each of our classes with a finished, professional-looking painting you will be proud to hang on your wall. We’ve had students from all over the lower mainland including Surrey, Vancouver & North Van; some come from as far away as Victoria & Washington! We’re here in beautiful Crescent Beach (South Surrey) at our bright, cosy studio by the sea to teach you how to paint – just look at what our students say:

Tiggy’s at crescent is a painting studio dedicated to step-by-step painting classes in a supportive environment. We use ultra-high quality, pure-pigment, non-toxic acrylic paints for all our classes, along with made-in-canada premium double-gessoed canvases and artist-grade acrylic-compatible brushes. We carry all supplies we use in classes and at prices on par with other lower mainland art supply stores, the difference being our supplies have all been hand-picked by Jackie to give you the best results at a reasonable price!

Tiggy’s has been in business for 25 years for a reason: we are one of the only art studios in BC that have focused, project-based art classes that actually teach you how to paint. The skills you learn in every class can be applied to any painting, but we teach them in a way that allows anyone to learn. If you are new to Tiggy’s check out our New Students page for more info on the first class you should take with us.

We are located just steps from the beach in South Surrey / White Rock. We are only open on days we have a class, so check out our calendar before making the trip to the beach if you’d like to see us in action!
