Free Saturday Labor Art Classes for Children at the American Labor Museum/Botto House National Landmark

Haledon, New Jersey --  The American Labor Museum/Botto House National Landmark has received funding from the Puffin Foundation to host Saturday Labor Art Classes for students from grades 3 through 5.  The classes begin September 29th and end on December 22nd, 2018.  (Class will not be held on October 27th.)  Due to the program's growing popularity, pre-registration is required.  

The purpose of the Saturday Labor Art Classes is to introduce students 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 a broader understanding of an immigrant worker’s home, lifestyle and workplace as a means of comparison to the same issues today. 

The classes will be conducted at the Botto House National Landmark, home of the American Labor Museum, located at 83 Norwood Street, Haledon, New Jersey.  For registration forms and/or further information, please call (973) 595-7953 or email labormuseum@aol.com.  The museum’s hours of operation are Monday through Friday 9AM-5PM.  Tours are offered Wednesday through Saturday from 1-4PM or by appointment.
