My name is Zachary Knudsen, also known as “Mr. Zach”. After being with Young Children’s Center for the Arts, Alexis and I started discussing giving parents an opportunity to either share a music class with their children, or a music class that children could experience with their peers. Alexis suggesting bringing back her Kreative Kids program, and I am thrilled to become a part of it! We have so many amazing musical experiences to share with your children and you.
As a music therapist, I have been developing my own musical experiences that will support your child’s social, physical and cognitive development. This class will introduce your child to how much fun music can be, and will inspire in them a passion for the arts. After being at YCCA this past year I’ve seen how wonderful a place it is, how fantastic all of your children are, and how much they love coming to school every day. I can’t wait to provide another opportunity for your children to have fun with music and their friends at Kreative Kids!”

My name is Lexi Weiner, also known as Ms. Lexi. I am an art teacher at YCCAon2. I have spent the past five years working with children through the arts in a process based approach. I am passionate about guiding children in their development. Having studied architecture at Lehigh University, I see art as a jumping off point for math, engineering, and science concepts with children.
I also highlight professional artist’s work, contemporary and historic, as a way for children to get exposed to a wide variety of media and techniques. This is my first year teaching at YCCA and I am excited to teach art classes through Kreative Kids. Art is a means for kids to practice problem solving, decision making, motor skills, and self-expression. I look forward to meeting you, your children and exploring together!
