Quarterly Classes Instructor Linda Dulaney (Daytime Classes), Noah Buchanan (Evening Classes)-

Evan by Linda Dulaney Finalist ARC 2013 International Compitition

Our classes at BACAA, offer the opportunity for intensive study, working from nature. Students will learn techniques and process to see and work from life. The process includes structure, proportion & how to correctly block in the outside graphic shape, drawing the contour and modeling the form.

The techniques that Linda Dulaney teaches will help students develop their artwork, conveying the natural organic forms and science of light on the form. Students will have the opportunity to work methodically through a process to compare what they see and draw from nature. 

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.
During the classes students have the opportunity to further develop their artwork by working from our beautiful cast collection and master copies. Students have the option to work independently to create a portfolio from the model in long pose. 

We work from life, live models, drapery, casts, still life.
We do not use photographs as references in our sessions with exception to master copies.

“I have the best memories of my trip to San Francisco and your workshop.I did learn some very valuable points from you and now am trying to sketch and draw a bit from these lessons. You made me so comfortable at your studio. You are simply an amazing and lovely person. 

Thank you with warm regards,




Thank you for all you do to help so many of us! Best,” Shyrl

“That was a Wonderful Workshop. You made us all feel so welcome.

The  perfect  enviroment , full of creative energy……..

Much love Lucy” 

James Gleason, juror, loved your work.  I’m pleased to let you know that your beautiful drawing “Meave” was his first choice for one of the three awards.  He said this about the piece:  “Beautiful line work as well as structure and proportion of the head drawing.”  If he could have given more than one award per artist, he would’ve given “Anna” an Honorable Mention, as well.  Congratulations, Linda S!
