Break out your favourite crayons, coloured pencils, markers, pastels, or whatever your heart desires and get creative! To help you relax after a long, stressful semester, we have created some Spring-themed colouring pages for you from our Kathleen Parlow fonds.

When you've finished your works of art, post it on social media and tag us (@uoftmusiclibrary) so that we can see the end result. If you have any special requests for other colouring pages from our collections, send me an email at
