Do I have to be good to get into a digital art school?

And what do I have to do to get into one? The school doesn't have to be great...I just need somebody to help me along. I've had nobody to teach me but myself. I'm not awful...I can do pretty good if I put enough effort into it but I can't even compare myself to some of the artists out there. I am a senior and only have a few months to figure everything out. Please don't answer unless you are SURE it is true. I am sick of crappy subjective answers.

Go ahead and apply to the schools your interested in. NO ONE starts out doing well, that's what school is for. If its art that gives you passion, then that's what u should do.

Do I have a chance though? Would a school accept an amateur?

most of the time you have to have a portfolio. i have been doing graphic design since i was 13 (i am 16 now) so 3 years i have spent racking up dozens of pieces for art school. but art school can be from all educational levels. beginners through advanced hence "art school".

I started when I was just turning 16 and am 17 now. So I have a long way to go before I reach my limits. I have a few pieces for a portfolio but not much. How much do you usually have to have? Also, do you know if you could go for digital art and photography? I have a passion for both.

if your looking to make some decent money i would go into photography but digital art can get you jobs as a graphic designer i guess its personal preference.

and quality over quantity always matters the most. although art galleries like it when you send at least a dozen so they have some aspect of variety.

Start out with making a portfolio of some of your projects you've done. Then you can send that portfolio out for schools to view your work. Apply at any school you want.
