We’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!
Happy new year from everyone at Tiggy’s! We hope you had a restful Christmas break and a great start to 2015. We have been open just over a week, and are already adding new classes to our Spring schedule!
White, Blue & Apricot is a brand-new class starting in March (photo to come). We’re also bringing back English Village due to popular demand as well as Shari’s Beach (perfect for West-Coast homes). There’s also a new Beginner’s date in case you or someone you know haven’t painted at Tiggy’s before and would like to start!
Be sure to sign-up any time online if you’re interested in any of these classes, or feel free to call the shop or stop by during our business hours.
We should also mention there are only a couple spots left in the popular New York New York palette-knife and Granville Island classes starting mid-February, so make sure you don’t miss out!
We’ll be adding more brand-new classes in the coming weeks as Jackie paints them, so be sure to check back.
Our website is finally back online, and we have a completely new look! Along with our huge selection of brand-new Fall classes, we are now able to offer online registration for classes! Visit our classes page to see our brand new calendar, which gives you a great overview of our class schedule.
You can register by clicking on the photo of the class, or the ‘Register’ button. Scroll down and you’ll see our list of upcoming classes with larger class photos. Once you click to register, you will be taken to the registration page where you can fill out your information, and once you submit that just enter your credit card information and you will be registered!
As you browse our new classes, you may notice Jackie is introducing a new type of class. Called “Fast ‘n’ Fab”, these classes are one-day only, don’t need any prep before the class, and include your surface! They are loaded with techniques and colour theory, and provide the convenience of being able to complete a painting from start to finish in just one day!
We’re currently in the midst of renovating our studio as well, and invite you to join us on September 20th for our Grand Re-Opening, in celebration of 20 years in business!
Jackie’s painted one more brand new class for the Spring schedule, and it will be the last one before Tiggy’s closes for the summer. Arbutus is a two-day class starting in April; both classes scheduled are almost full already, so be sure to sign up now if you’re interested!
We also have some spots left in the Dandelion class starting Wednesday March 12, the Whistler Village class starting Friday March 21, the Golden Tree class starting Saturday March 22, the brand-new class Rose’s Roses starting Wednesday March 26 and the Open class on Friday April 11. Tiggy’s closes for the summer May 9, so if you’d like to take a class before we re-open again in September, be sure to sign up for one of our available classes now!
We’ve just added a brand new class to the schedule: Rose’s Roses. There are also new dates added to the Dandelion and Golden Tree classes, with a few spaces still available in each. One more Open Class has been added on Friday, April 11, and it’s the last one until the fall. If you have any unfinished pieces you’d like to finally make time for, or are working on your own project and would like some extra guidance, the Open Class is for you.
Finally we will be adding another brand-new class before the summer break, Arbutus, starting Saturday April 19th. We’ll add it to the site once Jackie has finished painting it. 🙂
We close early for the summer this year (May 9th!) so these are among the last classes we will be offering until September! Make sure you sign up now if you’d like to do one more painting before the summer.
To celebrate our 20th year in business, we will be renovating the studio over the summer to provide our students more space and a lighter, brighter surrounding to paint in! We’ll be hosting a 20 Year Anniversary Open House in September, where you can drop in to see the new studio!
We will also be renovating the website at the same time in order to enable class sign-ups online! The website will not be available while we’re updating but should be back online by mid June/early July. We will schedule our fall classes once the website is back up and running.
A lot is happening at Tiggy’s this year, so be sure to keep checking the website or sign-up for our Newsletter to get all the latest updates!
If you are interested in any of these classes be sure to call the studio at (604) 541-8322 to register, and leave a message if we’re not there as classes are filled on a first-phoned-first-served basis, We will call you back when the studio is open.

We’ve added more dates to our 2014 schedule, and a brand-new (old) class!
Beginners II is new starting in January, there’s a new Gulf Island Cabin date in February (only two spots left!) and Cote D’Azur is a class we taught a few years ago, back by popular demand (only two spots left in that class as well!).
The Beginners class in January still has a few spots, as does the Open Class in February. The Beginners II class in February has only one spot left, Spring Flowers and Golden Tree have two spots, and both Whistler Village classes are full! We may schedule another Whistler Village class based on how many people are on our waiting list, so if you are interested be sure to let us know (as well as what days work best for you).
Remember if you bring in a new beginner to Tiggy’s, we’ll give you a $10 gift certificate!
Just a reminder the studio is now closed until the new year, so if you’d like to register for a class please call and leave a message (604-541-8322), as Melina will be checking messages and taking deposits over the break. Emails won’t be checked as often, so please call instead if you’d like to register. If you need to come in for supplies over the break, you can make arrangements with Melina as she will be at the studio on occasion.
Jackie will be painting a few new pieces over the break, so stay tuned for more class updates!
We’ve just added a bunch of brand new classes that will be starting in January 2014! Some are already full, but we will be adding more dates for popular classes so be sure to add your name to the waiting list if there’s a class you really want to take.
The shop will be closed for Christmas at the end of this week (Sunday, October 27 is our last day) so if you’d like to sign up you can call and leave a message (604-541-8322). Melina will be checking messages over the break and will be in the shop sporadically (based on demand) to take deposits.
