HALEDON, NJ - The American Labor Museum/Botto House National Landmark has received funding from the Puffin Foundation and the Horizon Foundation for New Jersey to host Saturday Labor Art Classes for students from grades 3 through 5.  The classes begin on March 2nd and end on May 18th, 2013.  Due to its growing popularity, pre-registration is required. 

The purpose of the program is to introduce students to the history and contemporary issues of working people and immigrants through the visual and performing arts.  Registered students will have the opportunity to participate in hands-on activities by which they are encouraged to develop their understanding of an immigrant worker’s home, lifestyle and workplace as a means of comparison to the same issues today.
