Linda Dulaney, Founder of BACAA, is a lifelong artist who manifested her desire to bring a school to life in the San Francisco Bay Area, based on the ateliers of the Rennaissance and old masters. Starting in the mid 1990s, Linda developed a clear understanding of the style and type of instruction she wanted in an atelier.

Linda’s teaching experience and artistry comes from years of study with some of the greatest realist artists. Her most influential teachers were Tony Ryder, Ted Seth Jacobs and Michael Grimaldi. Her passion is to teach each student so that they can to learn the principles of working from life. She is committed and relentless to teaching her students to see the beauty that is conveyed working from natural light. So that they can futher the skills to develop their artwork by working from life. Her inspiration is to teach and discover the fascinating human structure and form. She currently teaches the ongoing daytime classes at BACAA.
