Students grades 3-5 are invited to register and attend classes designed to introduce them to the history and contemporary issues of working people and immigrants through the visual and performing arts. Students are provided with the opportunity to participate in hands-on activities by which they are encouraged to develop their understanding and appreciation of an immigrant worker's home, lifestyle and workplace as a means of comparison to the same issues today. The classes are conducted at the Museum on Saturdays 11:30AM - 1PM. Pre-registration is required. Classes begin on March 2nd, 2013.
The Saturday Labor Arts Classes are funded, in part, by generous grants from the Puffin Foundation and The Horizon Foundation for New Jersey.
