Exploring Art showcases the works of the Y-Stars with artist-facilitator Felicia Low over two years. Felicia also presents through the work, the development of art and aesthetics with persons with Down Syndrome and/or multiple learning challenges. The development of pedagogy continues to be in-progress.

The Y-Stars are a group of teenagers and young adults with Down’s Syndrome and other intellectual challenges, who share a common passion for visual and performing arts. Organized by their dedicated parents, this group of 20 meet every Saturday at the CCD Studio in Goodman Arts Centre to ‘chill’ out with their friends, dance aka exercise and release the ‘Picasso’ in them.Through public dance performances and art exposure, they create better awareness and understanding of persons with special needs. They also aim to subsidize their living expenses through the sale of art pieces.
