William A. Schneider’s work has evolved since he finished his studies at the American Academy of Art. He credits the many hours he spent studying and copying masterworks by Nicolai Fechin with loosening up his brushwork and approach to edges.
William has won awards up to and including “Best of Show” in most of the national juried representational exhibitions. Bill’s work has also been featured in publications including Art of the West, Fine Art Connoisseur, Southwest Art, International Artist, The Artists’ Magazine, and The Pastel Journal. His instructional DVDs are distributed by Liliedahl Video Productions.
He was awarded signature status in Oil Painters of America (OPA). In addition the Pastel Society of America has recognized him as a “Master Pastelist,” IAPS (The International Association of Pastel Societies) has named him to the Masters’ Circle and AIS made him a Master Signature Member (AISM).
