He attended the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, and then earned his MFA from the University of Pennsylvania. Waddington has served on the faculties of the School of Visual Arts, Moore College of Art, the Art Institute of Philadelphia, Ursinus College, Camden County College, and was a guest lecturer at the University of Pennsylvania.
