Digital Media Online Audition Requirements

The Visual and Media Arts Department is looking for students interested in Digital Media.

Digital Media refers to art created with the aid of software, computers, or other electronic devices.  Art fundamentals are necessary building blocks for students interested in pursuing Cinematic Arts & Photography.

Students may demonstrate a talent in one medium or a variety of mediums.

To apply to the SDSCPA Visual and Media Art Department, please submit 6 - 10 of your most recent original art or media pieces for your portfolio, and an Artist Statement.

The portfolio should include:
1. Presentation

  • Slides or photographs are acceptable for three-dimensional and/or over-sized pieces

  • Neatness of presentation is important – artwork should be shown without unnecessary marks, smudges, ragged edges or folds.

  • 2-dimensional work does not have to be matted

2. Subjects

The Portfolio must include at least:

  • One self-portrait

  • One other work from direct observation

  • At least four of your best works.

3. Media
  • Include photographs or original works you find unique and interesting.  Some portfolio submissions can include other forms of media to showcase skills related to design such as a magazine cover design.  

4. Artist Statement
  • Include within your portfolio a written statement of why you want to study Digital Media and what art means to you.  What do you hope to accomplish at SDSCPA, and how will this experience help you achieve your goals?

These example art pieces follow the Portfolio Requirement Guidelines outlined above and would score excellently in the Assessment Criteria Rubric  (Variety of media, Quality, Originality and Craftsmanship). Please note that these examples are meant to guide you in your portfolio submission.  


The quality of these works show excellent use of the materials and practice with the art forms.  Please consider submitting your most recent, highest quality work for submission but do not be discouraged from submitting your work. We invite ALL applicants and are excited to further the art education, training, practice and experiences of all new incoming students to the SDSCPA Visual and Media Art Department’s Digital Media Program. Your portfolio DOES NOT need to look exactly like this and should showcase YOUR best skills and interests.





























Areas of assessment will include:

Portfolio (Variety of Media, Quality, Originality, Craftsmanship)
