Intention Figures

Intention Figures.Being There

Who is there for you when you need someone? What attributes draw you to him or her? To pay tribute to the important figures in their lives, veteran Art Therapist, Kay DeWaide, works with Bubbler Teens to construct intention figures through a creative and meditative process that all starts by writing down a few words on a piece of paper that represent this person and then crumpling that paper up into a ball that is used to create the head of the Intention Figure.
