The Bowtie Project

Clockshop uses the Bowtie as an outdoor classroom by organizing educational programs at the site. These programs encourage student-driven site exploration, discussion-based processing, and creative response.

We are preparing to begin our second season of Bowtie Storytellers, a program that enables youth from all over Los Angeles to develop skills in nature interpretation and introduces them to new ways of thinking about art and the environment. Writing In Nature, invites high-school-aged youth to write of their experiences in nature at the Bowtie.

Field trips are available upon request, and we do our best to design customized, age appropriate tours to meet specific needs. Our 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.
