After he graduated from South Pender High School in Rocky Point in 1966, Hayes enrolled at North Carolina Central University. He graduated from North Carolina Central with a B.A. degree and the University of North Carolina at Greensboro with an M.F.A. degree in 1970 and 1975, respectively. Hayes hosted his first art exhibitions in 1970 at Kitrell College and North Carolina Central University. He would develop a signature artistic style that includes the use of acrylic paints straight from the tube to create vibrant and emotive works.
