Tiggy’s Closes for Christmas October 31st

Tuscan StepsTiggy’s will be closing for Christmas October 31 and won’t reopen again until January 9, 2015. If you’d like to purchase supplies make sure you visit us before the end of next week.

We’ve scheduled a bunch of new classes for 2015, so make sure you take a look at our Classes page to see what’s available. Some are already almost full so be sure to sign up for the class you’d like to take before it’s too late! Online registration will be available while we’re closed over Christmas. Unfortunately, we won’t be able to process sign-ups in the store while we are closed, so registering via the website is recommended. Your information is sent over an encrypted SSL connection and complies with PCI standards, so is as safe as if you were to register in our studio.

Have a Merry Christmas and we look forward to seeing you again in the new year!

New Classes for the New Year!

West Coast BeachWe’ve scheduled a bunch of new classes for January and February 2015! On the list are a number of popular classes we’ve recently run including Gulf Island Cabin, Arbutus, Whistler Village, Tuscan Steps, Clambake, and Granville Island.

There are also two classes from a number of years ago, brought back by popular demand: the striking Sunflower, and locally-inspired West Coast Beach. West Coast Beach is unique in that Jackie encourages you to bring photos of your children (or grandchildren, or nieces and nephews, etc!) as everyone will be customizing their own painting with images of their kids! (The one shown is of Jackie’s two children).

ArbutusWe’ll be closing for Christmas on October 31st, but there are still classes available if you’d like to get some painting done in our bright studio space while the days get shorter, or perhaps would like to make a thoughtful Christmas gift. Shari’s Beach (starting Wednesday October 15) has only a couple spots available, and there’s one spot left in the New York, New York palette-knife class running the weekend of October 25th and 26th. Remember, you can put your name on our waiting list if a class you’d like to take is full, and we’ll let you know when we schedule a new date (usually before it goes online!) just email jackie at jackie@tiggys.ca or call the studio (604-541-8322).

If you’d like to register for a class you can visit our Classes page on the website (tiggys.ca) and register on-line via our secure, encrypted registration form. We will also be open this week starting Tuesday, October 7 from 10am-2pm if you’d like to register over the phone (604-541-8322) or in person.

Fast ‘n’ Fab Promotion! Read on to get Your Discount!

Fast ‘n’ Fab classes are brand new to Tiggy’s for the fall schedule, so we’d like to offer you a special discount on an already great price!

Avocado Series 1Our new Fast ‘n’ Fab classes offer you the opportunity to create a professional work of art in a one-day, five-hour class! Even though these classes are completed start to finish in just one day, they are not short on skills, techniques or theory. You will still receive a full set of class notes, photograph of the finished piece, and personalized instruction from Jackie (plus the surface you will be painting on is included!)

The techniques and skills you will learn and practice are the same as in much larger paintings, but the smaller size enables you to finish in a 5-hour class (and more easily find a spot to display them!)

Shoes Series 1To celebrate these brand new classes and our 20th year in business, we’d like to offer you 20% off our regular Fast ‘n’ Fab class fees! Just enter promo code FAB20 into the Promo Code box at the bottom of your registration form when signing up for any of the new Fast ‘n’ Fab classes, and you’ll instantly get 20% off! Plus your surface is still included!

Update: We are now offering everyone 20% off our Fast ‘n’ Fab Classes without having to enter a Promo Code. The Class Fee already is reduced by 20%, plus your surface is still included for free!

Visit our Classes page now to register online, and remember to enter FAB20 when signing up.

New Spring Classes PLUS Big Tiggy’s News!

rosesrosesWe’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!

Thanks and Happy Painting!

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!

Emails won’t be checked as often, so please call instead if you’d like to register.
