Shining Stars Visual Arts is a creative arts program for  Kindergarten to Year 12 public school students with disabilities. Shining Stars provides opportunities for students to actively engage in a relevant and meaningful program of study in arts education that reflects the needs, interests and abilities of each student. Students develop knowledge of the creative arts curriculum, life skills, performance skills and confidence in creating a dance performance piece that they will perform to large audiences.

During this program students participate in a series of workshops that provides them with an opportunity to build their creative art skills and meet and form friendships with other students with disabilities. At the conclusion of all our Shining Stars creative arts programs, students have the opportunity to showcase and celebrate their talents in a Shining Stars Showcase. In addition to the Shining Stars Showcase, opportunities are made available for students to perform and exhibit their work at festivals, conferences, fundraising events and exhibitions.

Shining Stars provides professional learning opportunities for teachers and School Learning Support Officers (SLSO) who are interested in developing their skills in creative arts education and in learning how to use and teach dance, drama, music and visual arts effectively in the classroom to support students.
