This season, give the gift of learning with UNLV Continuing Education

LAS VEGAS -- Stumped over what to give a loved one this holiday season? Think outside the paper-wrapped box with UNLV Continuing Education. The Spring 2013 Continuing Education Catalog is now available, and it is full of courses perfect for giving and sharing.

For a parent, friend, spouse, or partner, sign up for a course where you can enjoy quality time together. Chef Les Kincaid will lead a wide variety of cooking and wine appreciation courses after the first of the year, including Chocolate and Wine Pairing and Wines and Cheese of Italy and France. Other classes perfect for sharing quality time together include social dance, such as Country Two-Step and Latin American Social Dance.

Need an inspired gift for a creative type? UNLV Continuing Education offers a wide variety of art and music courses. The handy man or woman dreaming of a shop full of new tools this holiday can take a woodworking class that is provided in partnership with Wood It Is! in North Las Vegas. Participants will learn how to safely operate essential woodworking tools and feel confident when it is time to purchase tools for their home shop.

If you know someone who is getting a new digital camera, computer, or iPad this season, consider supplementing with the training they will need to maximize the gift’s potential. Digital photography courses begin in January. Introduction to Macs for Windows users is perfect for those getting a sleek, new Mac under the tree. Continuing Education’s popular iPad courses are designed to quickly build confidence and proficiency in new device users.
