New Classes for the Summer at Tiggy’s!

Jackie has added the last two classes that she will be teaching before her summer break to the Tiggy’s schedule. Be sure to sign up as this will be it until she returns in September. Don’t despair though, as for the first time in years there will still be painting classes offered at Tiggy’s through the summer! More details to come so stay tuned for our next newsletter.

We’ve added the Burrard Street Bridge to the schedule, a detailed portrait of one of Vancouver’s iconic bridges. Sandpiper is the other new class Jackie has added, starting Thursday May 12. There are also spots available for the Open Class on May 6, and Dave Benning’s new beginner portrait class, starting May 22.

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!

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!

New Classes for the New Year!

We’ve added a bunch of new classes for our Winter/Spring season, 2016! There’s a new Open Class in February for those of you who would like to come in to the studio and get Jackie’s help finishing a piece or working on a painting of your own design. Another Freesia has been added in March, and space is very limited due to the size of the canvas so previous classes have filled quickly. Another Tulips in Blue has also been added in March.

Finally Dave Benning is teaching a new palette-knife class, Vancouver Skyline. We already filled two of these classes before they made it onto our website, so if you are interested make sure to sign up for the class in February that still has spaces available.

There will be new Beginner’s dates for the new year as well, so stay tuned for that.

Thanks and Happy Painting!

 

New Winter Classes Added!

We’ve added another Tour D’Eiffel, Sun Mask, and the very popular Freesia class all starting in the new year. Sign up online now to secure your spot!

Dave Benning will be doing another demo class in the new year; if you haven’t taken a class with our new guest teacher this is a great opportunity to see what his teaching and painting style is like before committing to a full course. We’ll update you once the date is confirmed.

Just a reminder Tiggy’s will be closing for the Christmas holidays for all of November and December. There are still some classes with a few spots left that are coming up in October; these will be the last ones until January so be sure to sign up if you would like to take a class before the break!

Thanks and Happy Painting!
