Classes

The 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 and 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.

Figure Drawing in Pencil Form, Light and Craft

Art of Drawing
Drawing is an art that integrates and coordinates various ways of seeing. At the same time, it is something we do with pencil and paper. We make the mind into an instrument of attention, and then into several more, and then we teach them to play together while we lead the pencil about on the paper in a balletic movement.

Figure Painting Workshop in oil Non-Symbolic Figure Painting


345 Quarry Rd, San Carlos, CA 94070


1425 USD

Non-symbolic painting represents what we see with our eyes, not substituting ideograms, like present day ‘emojis’. In learning to paint non-symbolically we develop an understanding of the building blocks of visual experience: the form of things, and the light by means of which we see this form. We become aware of the fact that in all of nature in general, in particular the human figure,  there is a certain wonderfully beautiful kind of formal structure about which there has for centuries been a special knowledge and language.
