Violet Bedolla



Hello and welcome to the Hays Visual Art Department! My name is Violet Bedolla and this will be my sixth year in the art education field. I will be teaching Intro to Art (6th grade), Art 1 (7/8th grade), and Art 2 (8th grade). This is my second year at Hays Middle School, and I am excited to continue to teach and learn with these dawning artists. 

My background includes a BA in Art Education from Texas Woman's University and I am currently finishing my MA from the University of Florida. My love for art started as a little girl when I would run home from elementary school to watch Bob Ross on KERA. After graduating from college, I taught private art lessons to adults in a studio for a few years before teaching elementary and middle school students in the public school system. My favorite forms of art media are paint and soft pastels. During my free time, I enjoy watching movies - I am a big movie guru! I also enjoy hiking and traveling. Currently, I have a bucket list to visit all the National Parks in the U.S. 

Please visit our Hays Art website for our supply list and artworks created by our Hays artists.
