Progressive Art Studio Collective (PASC), is an art and design studio, and exhibition program of STEP, dedicated to supporting adults with developmental disabilities and/or mental health differences to advance individual career paths in the art and design fields. The PASC program brings focus to the artistic talent, expression and life experiences of disabled adults, while making a considerable change in the quality of their lives. PASC is the first progressive art studio in Detroit and Wayne County, joining an international network of peer studios.

PASC uses a “progressive art studio” structure, an effective participant-driven model adopted by many disability art programs across the United States, to encourage participants to develop their own independent art practices. Through in-person and online studios participants are supported by a staff of professional artists, and provided professional art materials to create artwork. Through exhibitions and commissions participants will showcase their artwork and earn an income from sales. We currently run three studios across Wayne County, MI, PASC Detroit, PASC Westland and PASC Southgate. 

Our in-person art studios are open Monday – Friday 8:30am – 3:00pm. Participants can choose to attend for a full or half day, as many days a week as they wish. At least two days a week is recommended.
