More Brand New Classes at Tiggy’s!

We’ve added three brand-new classes to the Tiggy’s schedule, with two more to come before we close for the summer break June 1!  Fabulous “Water!” is Dave Benning’s newest addition to our class lineup. Learn how to create the effect of deep water and the sparkle of sunlight.

chaplinDave will also be teaching a new Beginner Class here at Tiggy’s.  The class will have the same basic content and skill set as our regular Beginner’s programme but with a portraiture focus.  Learn how to paint a simple portrait step-by-step.  This class is geared for non-painters, with no previous painting or portrait painting experience required!

Blossoms in Grey is Jackie’s newest class.  Cascading cream blossoms are lovely on a muted neutral background.  The first class scheduled is full, but there is another scheduled in May!

Some Tiggy’s Community News:

One of our students works at Peardonville House in Abbotsford to aid women fighting addiction and other problems and their children. She offers them a creative and artistic outlet and always has need of art and craft supplies.  If you have any paints, wool/yarn, fabrics, brushes, etc that you might wish to donate, please bring them to Tiggy’s and we will make sure they get to the right place!

Also a reminder that the Zimbabwe Gecko Society’s fundraising Garage Sale is coming up quickly on May 21st.  Please know that 100% of the proceeds from all donations go directly to continue the work of ZGS helping widows and orphans in Zimbabwe.  Donations of household items, clothing, books and many other items may be dropped off at the White Rock Baptist Church on 140th Street and 16th Avenue on May 20 after 5:00 pm.  Thank you in advance for your support!

Thanks and Happy Painting!
