Blue Heron Community Art Studio is located in the rural community of Cedar Hill Lakes, Missouri. Construction of this earth friendly arts space started in August 2009, using the Cordwood Masonry technique. The studio will serve as an arts incubator for the community, offering local artists a space to create work and for community residents to engage in arts activities. Blue Heron Studio’s goal is to create and strengthen this rural Missouri community through the completion of the Studio in the Village of Cedar Hill Lakes, and to use the arts to bring neighbors together and foster individual creative expression.
