Free Saturday Labor Arts 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 virtual Saturday Labor Arts Classes for students from grades 3 through 5.  The virtual classes begin on March 6th and end on May 22nd, 2021.  Pre-registration is required so that the ZOOM link can be emailed to each registrant.  

The purpose of the Saturday Labor Arts 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 tours of the Museum and the opportunity to view historic artifacts and photographs 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 virtual classes will be conducted from the Botto House National Landmark, home of the American Labor Museum, located at 83 Norwood Street, Haledon, New Jersey.  To register, complete and return the registration form to the Museum at labormuseum@gmail.com.  To receive a form and for further information, please call (973) 595-7953 or email labormuseum@gmail.com.
