About Us

          Hummingbird Hill Art Studio and Art Camp is in its fourth year.  Anne Meyer, owner of the Art Studio, creates designs and paints children’s furniture as well as teaches art camp.  Two years ago, the studio expanded into an art classroom where children, teens, and adults can sign up for classes.

         Hummingbird Hill Art Studio is located minutes away from Traveler’s Rest and the Swamp Rabbit Trail in Greenville County.  It is also the home of Anne Meyer, her husband Jim, and their three children, three horses, three goats, three chickens, four dogs, and two rabbits!

         Anne believes that in order for children to gain confidence and joy in their artwork, small group size is key.  While Anne gives instruction in art skills, she also makes sure that her campers have time to explore their own ideas.  Children have access to many different art mediums including acrylic paints, watercolors, markers, wax crayons, printmaking, and clay; all inspired by nature.  

        This same philosophy applies to teenage and adult workshops and weekend retreats.  As Pablo Picasso once said, “Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.”

        Anne offers individual instruction, summer art camps, school break art camps, and weekend retreats in her home-based art studio just outside of lovely Greenville.

Meet Anne Meyer


     I grew up on a small farm in Pennsylvania.  My days were filled with explorations of creeks, woods, and animals on our beautiful plot of land.  I am the third oldest of ten children. Taking care of my younger brothers and sisters later contributed to my love of children.  My mother and I converted an old chicken coop into an art studio where children from all over came for art classes, cooking classes, gardening classes, and spending time outdoors.  

   I graduated from St. Mary’s College in Notre Dame, IN with a degree in Elementary Education and Fine Arts.   I moved to Chicago and taught for eleven years in inner city Chicago and Oak Park. Later, I met my husband and moved to Greenville, where I taught on and off for eight years.  With three young children at home, my love and my priority was being with them full-time. My husband and I wanted them to grow up surrounded by nature, taking care of animals, and being outside.  We bought “a little white house on a crooked little hill” nestled in beautiful ponds, streams, fields, and woods. Our children had adventures of a lifetime!

     Now, I am on an adventure of my own as my three are preparing to fly the nest.  Hummingbird Hill Art Studio was built by my husband and son. The Art Studio has also been converted into a classroom within our home.  

     The British author and conservationist Beatrix Potter once said, “If I have done anything, even a little to help children enjoy honest, simple pleasures, I have done a bit of good.” I too hope for my chance to provide a joyful place where not only children, but teens and adults as well, may create and explore art through nature, en plein air.

Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts.
