Clockshop is connecting the next generation of stewards through the Bowtie Project Education program at Rio de Los Angeles State Park. The program offers diverse urban youth a hands-on learning experience that integrates environmentalism and art practice. With this grant, Clockshop continue the efforts of education program by increasing the capacity and effectiveness of the program to become more sustainable in the long term and serve more students.
"The Bowtie Project Education Program is designed to introduce students to new ways of thinking about art and the environment using the Bowtie as the classroom. Students may engage in one-day site visits, multi-day units inspired by a single Bowtie artist project, and guided site exploration. Clockshop is thrilled to have California State Parks Foundation continued support in making this project possible."
