William A. Nathans has established his artistic career through the genres of portraiture and landscape painting within the tradition of representational oil painting. His main aspiration is to produce beautiful works of art and to establish himself as a premier portrait painter. Will believes it is his lifelong goal and responsibility to pass on the knowledge that he has gained within this great tradition to other generations as well as instill a solid work ethic and true devotion to the craft of painting and drawing.
He was educated at the Academy of Realist Art, Toronto, Ontario, and then at the School of Visual Arts, New York, NY . He is currently teaching out of his Dublin studio weekly classes in Figure Drawing, Portrait Painting and overall oil painting technique and is delighted to come to the Schoolhouse for Art to deliver a weekend workshop.
Will has been a guest art instructor at a number of Irish and US schools. His work comprises many private collections in the USA and Ireland. He has illustrated for 20th Century Fox, ABC Family and his Freelance Portrait and Landscape Portfolio is immense.
