In the emotional and entertaining reality show True Colours, twelve people with different disabilities get the chance of a lifetime – to attend an art school led by one of Sweden’s most renowned painters, Lars Lerin.

All the students have autism or Down Syndrome. They spend two life-changing months together, and try their hands at everything from painting and sculpting to photography and graphic design. Produced with a documentary-style storytelling, True Colours is as inclusive and warm as shows like The Choir and School for Stammerers.

Not only do the students grow creatively, but also as human beings. 
They share touching stories about living with disabilities – and find a new sense of self-worth, joy and hope through the art school, under the ever compassionate leadership of their teacher.
