The Darien Arts Center is offering a portfolio workshop for high school students who are looking to apply to art school.

"Turning Pro--Planning Your Portfolio," which will take place from 7 to 9 p.m. Nov. 18 and 25 and Dec. 9, will provide insights and skills needed to write an effective artist statement, a curriculum vitae and personal biography. Students will make their own art postcards and promotional materials and will learn how to photograph their work.

They will also meet working artists and designers and view their portfolios. The workshop will introduce students to curators, active exhibiting artists and graphic designers for an informative question-and-answer session, and will expose them to the experience of working in a gallery.

To register or for information, visit or call 203-655-8683.
