Hello, my name is Jeff Carol Davenport
Welcome to Ceramics, Intro to Art, and 3D Portfolio!
This is my thirteenth year in the Deer Valley Unified School District.
Before I became a teacher, I spent over twenty years as a professional artist. I have many life size bronze sculptures here in Arizona, New York, and in Vancouver, Canada. My most recent sculpture, Pat Tillman was dedicated in August 2018 at Arizona State University.
Besides creating art, I like to spend time in the great outdoors hiking, camping, and spending time with my family and pets.
I have been married for 22 years to my husband Mike, who is a retired ASU, and NAU police officer.
I am an NAU graduate and have a Bachelors of Fine Arts with an emphasis in sculpture. I also have a Masters Degree in Elementary Education from ASU. I am a life long learner. I also continue to take classes in art and education.
Teaching students about ceramics and art is my passion. I encourage all students to try thier best and have fun in my class.
