She teaches at 3rd Ward, a multi-disciplinary workspace and education center in East Williamsburg, and as an artist with a background in art education is part of a large creative community. “New York is ripe with working artists and people who are amazing teachers, so we are very lucky,” says Goodman. She says her ultimate goal is to provide children and teens with arts education and programming in urban areas that need it the most, and to fill the gap that exists when arts education programs get cut from schools. “If we can help one student, then I feel good,” she says. “We just want to make a difference where we can.”
