The Bowtie Project Education Program uses the Bowtie as a classroom. Students of all ages are introduced to new ways of thinking about art and the environment.
The Bowtie Project Education Program encourages student-driven site exploration, discussion-based processing, and creative response. Field trips are designed on a case-by-case basis, and customized to meet specific needs. Cross-curricular content engages students in thinking about the connections between art and landscape. Students may participate in one-day site visits, multi-day units inspired by a single Bowtie artist project, and/or guided site exploration. Clockshop works with artists, CA State Parks, and National Park Service rangers to execute this program.
*Clockshop’s education programs integrate contemporary art and environmental education. If your interest is specific to the LA River, Friends of the LA River (FOLAR) offers a variety of education programs.

Pilot year funding was provided by the Ralph M. Parsons Foundation and the California State Parks Foundation.
