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!

All New Fall Classes at Tiggy’s!

tulips in blueJackie’s been painting up a storm this summer and is ready to offer 5 brand-new classes for the fall season!

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.

There’s lots to whet your palatte but as usual seats are limited so be sure to visit the website to register soon! Jackie will be placing the paintings in the window at the studio in Crescent Beach if you’d like to come down and see them in real life while we are still closed.

Have a great rest of the summer and Happy Painting!

Exciting New Class at Tiggy’s!

DaveBenning_BobMarleyWe’re excited to announce that Dave Benning, Vancouver’s premiere rock ‘n’ roll artist will be teaching a class at Tiggy’s before the summer!

Join us Sunday, May 24 from 11am-1:30pm for a special sneak-preview demo session with Dave. Watch as he creates magic on several canvases and experience his contagious energy! This is a unique opportunity to get a feel for Dave’s teaching and artistic style before committing to a full class. Registration is limited and includes lunch (as well as complimentary tea & coffee). Click here to sign up now!

Starting Sunday, May 31 from 10am-3pm, Dave’s “Rock Star” Portrait Class will be a 3-week, hands-on, project-based painting class in true Tiggy’s style. Complete an iconic image (we will be choosing the image at the demo session) and learn Dave’s techniques for creating his lifelike hyper-realistic portraits. We recommend students to have some painting experience before taking this class (taking a previous class at Tiggy’s will be helpful) but it is not a requirement.  Click here to secure your spot early!

Thanks and happy painting!
