Digital Media

The Digital Media Arts program focuses on developing each student’s artistic creativity in electronic art communications. Students have the opportunity to explore digital illustration, graphic design, photography, animation, gaming, and video production while becoming familiar with a variety of advanced computer applications. In our state of the art multimedia facility, students will have access to professional camera equipment, computers, studio equipment, and an ever-growing list of industry standard software.

Throughout their high school career, students will create a high quality electronic portfolio that showcases their artistic and technical abilities. By graduation, they will have the training and experience necessary to enter an advanced digital media arts program or to embark upon a career in their chosen media arts field.

 

​Digital Media Auditions

The North Fort Myers High School Arts Auditions are for exceptionally talented incoming freshmen. Students with a passion for art and design are encouraged to apply. Acceptance into the arts program ensures each student's place at North and sets them on a digital art track of their choosing. Each year as a member of the arts program students are required to take and pass at least one course in their chosen track.

For auditions, students will need a well put-together digital portfolio that includes three examples of their best digital artwork and they will need to be prepared to present their portfolio to us in an interview-style session on the day of their audition. 

Common Prerequisite Course: Digital Info Tech

All students at North High are enrolled in Digital Information Technology, usually as freshmen. This course satisfies their online course credit for graduation in addition to offering professional certification in Microsoft Word, Powerpoint, and Excel.
Digital Information Technology can be taken at the same time as a first-level Digital Media courses, but is the prerequisite for all upper-level courses. 

Optional Prerequisite Course: Digital Media Foundations
Digital Media Foundations is an introductory course for students who are unsure of which digital track they would like to pursue. In this entirely project-based course, students will gain a foundational knowledge of the elements and principles of design, beginner photography techniques, short film, 3D animation, and 2D gaming. They will complete the year with a taste for what each of our larger tracks offers and be more prepared to move into the digital course of their choosing.

Restrictions: This course is not open to students who audition to get into one of our digital tracks and CAN NOT be taken at the same time as another digital media course. It is strictly an introductory course for students who are not yet ready for one of our digital tracks.
