Welcome to the DeSerres Studio
Free Workshops for You
We are excited to offer a series of free acrylic and watercolour workshops throughout the event. Visit our studio space to discover a new medium, or simply have fun. If workshops are not your thing, you can unleash your creativity with our unique ready-to-be-coloured mural. Simply grab a marker and get creative! Kids can also let their imagination flow by drawing and colouring, too!
*A parent must be present at all times.
