New Farmington Hills art camp has marine theme

Kids will take a deep dive into the world of marine life and art during the City of Farmington Hills Cultural Arts Division’s Wild at Sea Art Camp, held from July 8 to 12 at the Heritage Park Stable Art Studio.


Youth ages 8 to 12 will explore the wildlife living in our world’s rivers, lakes, and oceans. Participants will learn all about whales, sharks, fish, and vegetation while experimenting in different artistic mediums such as drawing, painting, puppetry, and more.

Wild at Sea Art Camp is supported in part by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Agency’s (NOAA) Teacher at Sea Alumni Association in partnership with the National Marine Sanctuary Foundation.

Camp instructor Stephen Kade is a K-12 art teacher for Dearborn Public Schools and was a 2018 NOAA Teacher at Sea participant. During his residency, he worked on the NOAA ship OREGON II where he aided in shark surveying and data collection in the Gulf of Mexico and in the southeast Atlantic Ocean.

Kade is a long-time participant in the annual Art on the Grand art fair in downtown Farmington.

Morning and/or afternoon extended care is available in Heritage for this full day camp. An additional fee applies. To register, or to see a list of other summer camps, visit or call 248-473-1800.
