MAE WEST, who once starred with Frank Wallace in a show "A Florida Enchantment," gave twenty children an enchanting art lesson in Florida yesterday.
• • According to an article by Orlando-based journalist Amy Tobik: The fifth-grader enthusiastically leapt from her seat with a sudden revelation.
• • "Her lips look like pillows," she said eagerly as she pointed at artist Salvador Dali's work, Face of Mae West Which May Be Used as an Apartment.
• • "That's right, they do look like pillows," answered Ruth Wiedenmann as she continued to point out hidden pictures within the surrealistic work.
• • "It's kind of like the seek-and-find picture books," Wiedenmann said as she continued to point out the clock disguised by a nose and a curtain rod cleverly holding up Mae West's hair like a theater curtain.
• • A crowd of nearly 20 children sat at the edge of their seats staring at three works by Dali, anxious to grab their colored pencils and begin their weekly art project as part of the after-school program known as SOAR — — Safe Oasis At Redeemer.
• • Their assignment during the Art Styles of the Masters session, held at Lutheran Church of the Redeemer in Sanford, was to draw their own surrealistic face filled with hidden objects. . . .
