Morgan: Big heart, endless talent

Morgan Hayes, graphic design major, wants to bring art to the world

To call Morgan talented would be an understatement.

At 15 she starting teaching an art class to elderly women of the Delta Sigma Theta Chapter of Augusta, and just recently she began teaching young children as well.

When asked why she chose to major in graphic design, she smiles softly and says, “I chose it because it was the only visual arts field that I had no knowledge of and I wanted to challenge myself.”

Even though graphic design is her focus now, Morgan began her work in the art industry through painting and photography. Drawing inspiration from the artistic influences of Jeff Koons and Andy Warhol, she enjoys combining the different art disciplines.

“They teach me to make the world a more colorful place,” she says. “And that if it’s dull, it’s my job as an artist to make it bright.”
