Melody Hope Stein makes art come alive for young people and has done so for most of her life as a lifelong artist and a dedicated arts educator. She taught for 46 years, in New York before moving to Las Vegas in 1996. Here she served for fourteen years as the arts director and art teacher at the Dr. Miriam and Sheldon Adelson Educational Campus (formerly Milton I Schwartz Hebrew Academy) in Summerlin.
With her move to Las Vegas, Melody’s passion inspired her to open a craft store with family members. She also produces and manages arts publications, has taught writing at the Community College of Southern Nevada, and continues to create custom artwork products.
