Lifedown Lockdrawing



This open, generously spirited and intimate publication marks a snapshot of DJCAD art and design students’ experience of life drawing and creating a drawing community during the recent sensibilities of lockdown. The idea of generating a capture of the students’ recent output, however that was to be interpreted, was simply sown. The students ran with the idea and collaborated, curated, edited and produced a series of digital captures, which has evolved to this publication. The originating digital pinboards, showcases and virtual shares, plus the groupings’ future endeavours are accessible via DJCAD’s Virtual Life Drawing Room, the growing online drawing community the students (and staff) are nurturing. It has been a pleasure to be part of the students’ flourishing community and this visual recording is a testament to their thriving drawing process and practice. Personally, I have been totally enthused by their energy and working results. More to follow I trust! Alex Roberts Lecturer in Drawing, Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design, University of Dundee.
