Experience with drawing and oil paints recommended

Learn to paint the self-portrait with a limited palette, referencing photos from a phone, tablet or iPad. Class will include demonstrations to explain the process of painting a self-portrait.

When not painting, Coila is busy running her gallery in Roundup, MT. She was recently recognized by the Portrait Society of America for her piece “Portrait of a Family Man.”

Why paint a self portrait?

I’ve been thinking about this question as this 1 day class is soon approaching.

I feel the self portrait is an opportunity to be reflective of self, in our successes and even failures. In addition to marking a moment in time that is representative of a milestone achieved, or a memorable experience.

This paraphrased statement I wrote while working on the Parkland series last year continues to resonate...”Death and life have continuous ripples. We can never truly know the affects of how people touch our lives or us theirs.”

It is important to learn to tell our stories, leaving a bit of ourselves for the next generations.

Be sure to get in touch with Sally McIntosh with any questions!

I look forward to making a self portrait with you. I look forward to hearing your stories.

~ Coila Evans
