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.
I made an unknown doll… I guess she a movie star you see cause she got the hat, the hair, the glamor, the dress on see? So she going to a movie premier.
I did Tina Turner because I chose the word powerful, and she was a powerful singer, dancer, and she took some powerful hits…she powerful.
The word inside is persistent, cause even with all the stuff that happened to me, my mom, she kept trying to get me on the right path and stuff, she never gave up. Even when it got very bad, she’s always been very persistent that way.
Even thought this looks sort of crazy, it’s supposed to be my mom. Inside the head I put proud, because she’s a very proud woman, and I used the Packers cloth cause that’s her favorite team. This is supposed to be her crown cause she’s a queen.
I made this figure that has a paper ball inside that says Darth Vader, and I made it about my brother because has a deep voice and he likes to dress up as Dark Vader. He has this cape at home and he has these katana swords and he be going (sword fighting actions).
