The Wabanaki Visual Arts (WVA) program is inviting students and staff at the College to come visit the fourth floor at noon hour every second Tuesday for a lunch smudge. A smudge is a ceremony used to cleanse the personal self. This is the smoldering of traditional medicine, which often includes the burning of sage, sweetgrass, cedar and tobacco.
Are you interested in seeing where the WVA students learn? Or perhaps you’d like to learn more about what the program offers, like woodcarving, quillwork or beading. Join us in this relaxed setting to participate in meaningful conversation, or just pop by to say hi and introduce yourself.
You do not have to smudge to attend this event. The smudge is available for anyone who wishes to use it. WVA instructor and studio head, Judie Acquin-Miksovsky, will also be present if anyone would like to learn how to smudge. Everyone is welcome to join. You do not have to stay for the full noon hour.
***There will also be homemade bookmarks available by donation, made by WVA student Kate Clermont, as well as granola bars and coffee to take away. If you come to the lunch smudge, your name will also be entered into a draw to win a piece of art of your choosing created by Kate Clermont.***
Thanks to the Wabanaki Visual Arts program for offering this event to the College community.
