Progressive Art Studio Collective (PASC), is an art and design studio, and gallery program, dedicated to supporting STEP consumers to advance individual career paths in the art and design fields. This new program brings focus to the artistic talent, expression and life experiences of disabled adults, while making a considerable change in the quality of our consumers’ lives. PASC is the first progressive art studio in Detroit and Wayne County, and joins an international network of successful peer progressive art studios.
PASC uses a “progressive art studio” model, used by many disability programs across the United States. This model puts participants in control by encouraging them to guide their own experiences and education in the arts. 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 in our in-person and online galleries participants will showcase their artwork and earn an income from sales.
There are no out of pocket costs for the program for those covered by Medicaid, and scholarships are available to cover those not on Medicaid.
