The Days in the Arts (DARTS) program is a summer residential program near Tanglewood that provides middle school students with high-quality arts immersion experience, allowing each student to engage with and create art with their peers in a positive, non-judgmental environment.
The program unites students from urban, suburban and rural communities – and has been doing so for 50 years! Each summer since 1968, the BSO operates the Days in the Arts residential education program that invites students from across Massachusetts to gather together to explore the arts. DARTS serves 400 middle school students each summer during eight one-week sessions.
