In recent years, the trend is to give the gift of experience, friendship and family time rather than extravagant presents. This year, when you are considering what to give, why not think local and give a local experience? There are plenty to choose from in the Shuswap!
Did you know Sorrento Centre offers experiences and courses all year long – we are so much more than awesome summer programs and events. Throughout the year, we continue to host events and activities that truly nourish the body, mind, and soul.
Here’s some gift-giving ideas for everyone on your list.
Give the gift of Expressive Art:
Shuswap Rock Rhapsody in-person Art Course – Retreat to the beautiful Sorrento Centre campus and learn to paint the wonder that surrounds you. Josie will lead you on a creative journey using acrylic paints and Shuswap shoreline as the subject. This course is led by Josie Pearce, a resident of Scotch Creek and an incredible visual artist specializing in work with pencil, pen and ink, pastel, oil and acrylic mediums. Josie’s gentle guidance will leave even the most hesitant artist pleasantly surprised. This program is open to beginner and intermediate students. Learn more here
Creative Journaling via Zoom: Joy for the New Year
In Creative Journaling, a theme is presented and participants are invited to use words, imagery and a variety of mixed media techniques to unearth, explore and record their unique responses, thoughts and emotions. Participants are united in hope, support and camaraderie as they uncover their inherent creativity. A safe and creative space is born where negativity is banished leaving only room for meaningful connection, self-expression and healing. Learn more here
