With their yellow petals gone to seed, aging dandelions sway in the breeze before wafting away. Elsewhere, cartoon cats perch on a purple fence, mewling out at the sea and the stars that swirl above the moonlit water. Though these sound as if they're scenes from a wistful animated movie, they're the kind of eye-grabbing images that novices can create at Arts-n-Carafes. Inside the relaxing haunt, seasoned artists and people who have never known the joy of tying a wild canvas to the easel get together to paint their own versions of colorful pieces and sip on provided wines. They can also sign up for an off-site private party, painting in the comfort of their own home or company office.
