In 1865, Schider decided to pursue a career as an artist and enrolled at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna. There, he studied with Alexander von Wagner, Arthur von Ramberg and Wilhelm von Lindenschmit. A year later, he accompanied his friend Hans Makart to Munich and entered the Academy of Fine Arts there.
