About the Instructor:

Educated as a graphic designer, Catherine Schrenker, taught color theory and graphic design for more that fifteen years, including nine years at the University of Notre Dame. She received her Masters of Fine Arts (MFA) from the prestigious Cranbrook Academy of Art, Bloomfield Hills, Michigan and a Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) from Indiana University, Bloomington, Indiana.

Catherine became a distinguished pioneer in color theory and the integral role color plays in our emotions and behavior.

As an artist, Catherine began showing her unique bold style of watercolor painting, described as “more color than water” this past year. Working with Catherine will definitely be a unique creative experience, and we are sure this will NOT be your last painting party with Catherine!
