Barbara Weeks received her BFA from St. John’s University, New York, and has been fortunate to have worked in the field of art in many capacities ever since. For two decades she was an art director and production manager in the magazine publishing industry. In 2005 she took that experience and founded Remarque Paperworks, LLC, a company dedicated to personal and corporate graphic design services.
Barbara is a member of the Illinois Watercolor Society, Urban Sketchers, Urban Sketchers Midwest and Urban Sketchers Chicago. In 2014 she served as guest blogger for GoodFoodFestivals.com as Urban Sketcher Meets Urban Farmer.
Barbara teaches private sketching and journaling classes that use watercolor and sketching to record everyday life.
At the seminar this summer she will be teaching Workshop 1: Beginning Urban Sketching
Barbara was an Urban Sketcher long before the Chicago chapter was started. She was instrumental in creating our group, serves as one of its admins, is a USk Chicago Correspondent, and an amazingly talented lady in every way!
