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 Saturday Labor Arts Classes for students from grades 3 through 5.  The classes begin on October 2nd and end on December 18th, 2021.  Pre-registration is required.  It is not necessary to attend every class.  

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 classes will be conducted at the Botto House National Landmark, home of the American Labor Museum, located at 83 Norwood Street, Haledon, New Jersey.  To receive a registration form and for further information, please call (973) 595-7953 or email labormuseum@gmail.com.
