Gloria Heifner
My name is Gloria Heifner.
art studio
My art studio is located in historic North Kansas City, MO which is quickly becoming a hot spot for night life. North Kansas City is just across the Missouri River from Kansas City's renown River Market area. If you like art, craft beer, music, and/or good food. North Kansas City, MO is the place to find it.

My goal for the  art studio is to provide a place to see the art of local up and coming artists as well as provide the opportunity for individuals to take classes and make their own creations. Classes are offered for both kids and adults in a variety of methods and mediums. I am also offering a space for artists to gather with other artists to share idea's, methods,  frustrations, and inspiration.

My hope is that the creative spirit of my studio will inspire you to become more creative in your own life  in yourway.
