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!

Thanks everyone and Happy Painting!

Two Brand-New Classes Added to the Schedule! (And a New Beginner’s Piece!)

New Beginner's Program
New Beginner’s Program

Jackie has been painting-up-a-storm the last couple of weeks, and as a result we have added two brand-new classes to the schedule: a Beginner’s II Program and Crystal Peony.

The Intermediate class is for those students who have taken a few classes at Tiggy’s and have painting experience, but would like to brush up on their techniques. The Intermediate Program will focus on advanced colour theory and colour mixing, as well as new brush techniques. Students who have taken Beginner’s and would like to practice their painting techniques more before taking one of the regular classes at Tiggy’s would also be well-suited for this class.

Jackie also painted a new piece for Beginner’s, based on the popular Red Door class. All Beginner’s Program classes from now on will use this piece, which allows students to practice a variety of brush techniques and colour mixing.

Be sure to call or visit us if you’d like to sign up for a class!
