New Classes for Spring!

We’ve added more new classes to the Tiggy’s schedule!

Free Form Totem is a colourful abstract piece that embraces your wild side – learn how to free-form paint in this class and let go of inhibitions! Classes start April 1 (no joke!)

White Rock Pier is another landscape by Dave Benning embracing the beauty of the West Coast and our local landmarks. Classes start March 20.

We’ve added new Beginners dates if you know of someone looking to start taking classes at Tiggy’s! New class starts April 21.

beatlesLastly there are still some spots available in the Beatles Fab 4 evening class, with new dates starting March 14, 6:30 to 9:00pm! These four musically-themed canvases would make a great addition to a movie room or gym, or make a unique gift for the rock-n-roller in your life!

We look forward to a busy Spring!

Thanks and Happy Painting!

Brand-New Classes for Winter/Spring Schedule

Tiggy’s is gearing up for Spring with a bunch of new classes! Dave Benning has added two new evening classes: a Beatles-inspired set of close-up instruments, perfect for the entertainment room, and a very West Coast orca landscape.

Jackie has added the brand new Pink Blossoms and added dates for Jar of Flowers, as well as a new Beginner’s class at the end of April! As always you can sign up instantly online by visiting the Classes page.

Happy Painting!

New Beginner’s Class Date

We’ve added a new Beginner’s date to the schedule for 2016! Our next Beginner’s class starts Saturday February 27, 2016. If you’d like to sign up, please visit our classes page to register!

Please note Tiggy’s is now closed for the winter break and will re-open January 10. If you would like to contact the studio, please email Jackie at jackie@tiggys.ca for the quickest response. Messages left on our answering service will only be checked periodically and may not be replied to until we re-open.

Have a wonderful rest of the year and Happy Painting!

New Classes for the New Year!

We’ve added a bunch of new classes for our Winter/Spring season, 2016! There’s a new Open Class in February for those of you who would like to come in to the studio and get Jackie’s help finishing a piece or working on a painting of your own design. Another Freesia has been added in March, and space is very limited due to the size of the canvas so previous classes have filled quickly. Another Tulips in Blue has also been added in March.

Finally Dave Benning is teaching a new palette-knife class, Vancouver Skyline. We already filled two of these classes before they made it onto our website, so if you are interested make sure to sign up for the class in February that still has spaces available.

There will be new Beginner’s dates for the new year as well, so stay tuned for that.

Thanks and Happy Painting!

 

New Winter Classes Added!

We’ve added another Tour D’Eiffel, Sun Mask, and the very popular Freesia class all starting in the new year. Sign up online now to secure your spot!

Dave Benning will be doing another demo class in the new year; if you haven’t taken a class with our new guest teacher this is a great opportunity to see what his teaching and painting style is like before committing to a full course. We’ll update you once the date is confirmed.

Just a reminder Tiggy’s will be closing for the Christmas holidays for all of November and December. There are still some classes with a few spots left that are coming up in October; these will be the last ones until January so be sure to sign up if you would like to take a class before the break!

Thanks and Happy Painting!

New Portrait Class Added

We’ve added another portrait class to the fall schedule with our fantastic new teacher, Dave Benning! This time it’s the iconic James Dean. Class starts October 11. Sign up soon as Dave’s classes always sell out fast!

Just a reminder there are still a few spots left in our other fall classes, including the Beginner’s starting in October, so make sure to sign up as these will be our last classes before the winter break!

Thanks and Happy Painting!

Tulips in Blue and Freesias are still-life flowers that would fit with any decor. Tour d’Eiffel is a palette knife featuring an iconic Parisian view. Freighter at Spanish Banks features an iconic Vancouver view, and Sun Mask is a colourful take on traditional Haida art. We are also offering a new portrait class from our special guest teacher Dave Benning, featuring the much-loved John Lennon.

Veni Vidi Venice!

veniceWe’ve added a brand new class to the schedule: Venice! The first class we scheduled was almost full before we even added it to the website, so we’ve added a second class right away.

We’re running one of the classes three consecutive days in a row; it means you’ll be able to leave your supplies and canvas in our secure studio overnight each day, and go home with a finished piece in three days instead of three weeks!

The first class starts Tuesday, March 31. If you’d like to sign up be sure to visit our classes page to register securely online!
