SCPA | Visual Arts Department

Fine Arts

The SCPA Fine Arts Department provides a rigorous conservatory experience in 2D & 3D art education. During the first two years, traditional skills and disciplines are stressed, and in the later years students are encouraged to develop their own voice and use the appropriate media to express their ideas. SCPA artists gain essential exposure to public audiences, leading to more exhibition and showcase opportunities.

SDSCPA seeks students with potential, passion, and commitment to the arts. Previous training is helpful, but not necessary.

Students may audition for more than one discipline; however, if they are accepted to more than one program they will need to choose one program in a single major. There is no “double major.” Typically, there is room for additional arts courses in the junior and senior year, after A-G requirements have been satisfied.

Each major will accept approximately 36 students. Students on first day will have access to first available slots. Second audition date will accept only remaining spaces available.

Audition dates:

  • High School Audition Date #1 (Saturday November 4, 2017)
  • High School Audition Date #2 (Saturday, December 2, 2017)
