Bridada Bethea



Bridada Bethea graduated from Clemson University with a Bachelor of Fine Art in Visual Arts with a minor in Architecture; and recently graduated from the Academy of Art University with a Master of Fine Art in Fashion Merchandising. She is currently enrolled as an online student at Prescott College, studying for a Master of Science degree in Clinical Counseling with an emphasis in Adolescence and Family Counseling, while also pursuing a post grad certificate in Art Therapy.


After realizing corporate retail was fun but personally unrewarding, Bridada started to look towards her love of the arts and the youth and began her teaching career at Lorien Academy of the Arts as a Printmaking Professor. Following her time at Lorien, Bridada went on to teach elementary art in South Carolina for a year, then found her home at Fusion!
