About Homegrown

Homegrown, as defined by the root “Home,” meaning to be comfortable and in one’s personal environment, and “Grown,” meaing personally defined. Together, the two words symbolize a meaning that transcends the forced creation of school-work or the mediocre tendencies to fit into a cultural norm. Instead, Homegrown is a self-creation, a definition pronounced by music, art, or performance, or any combination of the three.

This section hopes to provide you with the experience of self-creation by high school students. Work that cannot be printed does not have a stable or consistent outlet at Shawnee Mission East, but this section wishes to grow and expand to become that “Home” for expressive artists.
