Born in New York, Howard Schroeder trained as a commercial artist at the National Academy of Design. After serving in World War II, having been stationed at Lewes, Delaware, Schroeder and his wife opened the iconic art-supply store, The Art Age, which fueled the growing artist colony surrounding the Rehoboth Art League. Schroeder spent most of the rest of his life teaching art within small classes and private schools across the state.
