Hi, I'm Joe Kolceski.  I teach art to grades PreK - 5.  I've been a teacher for more than 20 years and enjoy sharing my love of creating art with others.

I also enjoy spending time with my wife and three wonderful children, Nicholas, Carolyn, and Kirk. We like to travel, be outside, and play music together.  I play violin each week at my church and often jam with friends.  Image result for violin free clipart
