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 Renaissance 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  most influential teachers were Tony Ryder, Ted Seth Jacobs and Michael Grimaldi. She currently teaches the ongoing daytime classes at BACAA and at Stanford University.
