MACKLEMORE made sure he put his daughter into a school where she can “focus on her creativity”.
The 35-year-old rapper has two daughters, three-year-old Sloane and 11-month-old Colette, with his wife Tricia Davis, and has said it was important for him to find a school for his eldest tot that prioritises creative learning, because he thinks art is an important part of the school system.
He said, “I’m already watching it with Sloane. She’s almost four now and we picked the school that she can really focus in on her creativity and has a social justice mission.
“And then also, of course, putting her into classes wherever she is passionate.
“That’s one of the things that I have resources for is to be able to pay for private arts education outside of schools, but a lot of people don’t have that.”
The Marmalade hitmaker is so passionate about the importance of art that he recently teamed up with LIFEWTR to work to beautify high schools that are facing cuts to their arts programming in Miami, Boston, Chicago and elsewhere with murals by local artists. – BANG!
