The Bowtie Project

Video: Small, Medium, Large

The Bowtie Project Education Program introduces students to new ways of thinking about art and the environment using the scenic Bowtie Project as the classroom.

The Bowtie Project Education Program encourages student-driven site exploration, discussion-based processing, and creative response. Students may engage in one-day site visits, multi-day units inspired by a single Bowtie artist project, and guided site exploration. Clockshop’s education team works with CA State Parks rangers and artists to carry out the program.

Clockshop works directly with teachers to develop pre- and post-site activities. The Bowtie Project Education Program is small and flexible; all programs can be adapted to meet specific curriculum needs.

Preparing for your Visit

*Clockshop’s education programs integrate contemporary art and environmental education. If your interest is specific to the LA River, the field trips offered by Friends of the LA River (FoLAR) might be a better fit.
