Representation Matters… “Not I but We”

By Dr. Rose Davidson, STEM Coordinator
Last spring, students in the Introduction to Art courses created comic book hero characters using Adobe Photoshop. After exploring stereotypes related to representation in the comic book industry, students were tasked with creating their own superhero or hero comic book cover in response to the issues they were most passionate about. Students considered gender, race, body types, and other issues as they created their characters.
In conjunction with Diversity, Equity and Inclusion efforts, SJA provides “mirrors” for all students to see themselves represented on campus. With this in mind, posters created by the students were selected to create the display entitled, “Representation Matters… Not I but We” for the Board Room.
St. Joseph’s Academy is a private, Catholic high school for girls in St. Louis, Missouri, sponsored by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet. Our mission is to provide quality Catholic education for young women in an environment that challenges them to grow in faith, knowledge, and respect for self and others. Our community expects these young women to make a profound impact in the world.
