Exciting New Class at Tiggy’s!

DaveBenning_BobMarleyWe’re excited to announce that Dave Benning, Vancouver’s premiere rock ‘n’ roll artist will be teaching a class at Tiggy’s before the summer!

Join us Sunday, May 24 from 11am-1:30pm for a special sneak-preview demo session with Dave. Watch as he creates magic on several canvases and experience his contagious energy! This is a unique opportunity to get a feel for Dave’s teaching and artistic style before committing to a full class. Registration is limited and includes lunch (as well as complimentary tea & coffee). Click here to sign up now!

Starting Sunday, May 31 from 10am-3pm, Dave’s “Rock Star” Portrait Class will be a 3-week, hands-on, project-based painting class in true Tiggy’s style. Complete an iconic image (we will be choosing the image at the demo session) and learn Dave’s techniques for creating his lifelike hyper-realistic portraits. We recommend students to have some painting experience before taking this class (taking a previous class at Tiggy’s will be helpful) but it is not a requirement.  Click here to secure your spot early!

Thanks and happy painting!
