Be it a house party, a wedding, or a prom, Ramundo Andrews, a.k.a. Deejay Mythikal, is ready to plug in his laptop, turn on the mixer, and crank up a variety of tunes to fit the scene. He soundtracks parties with new and old school tracks in a range of genres such as rap, soul, and disco. Though he's been playing records for five years, Deejay Mythikal's musical experience dates back to high school where he first began to play in local bands. Since then, he's delved into musical production, sound engineering, and song composition.
The artists at Wine and Canvas awaken their students’ inner Rembrandts and Van Goghs with classes that pair a featured painting with specialty cocktails and wines. The mobile studio’s monthly calendar includes themed classes in which instructors expound on the nuances of painting Parisian street lamps, Japanese flowers, or Venetian cityscapes. The master painters—many of them local artists—provide step-by-step instructions while students mimic each stroke and periodically dip their brushes into glasses filled with crimson cabernet. Each of the studio’s various drink-friendly venues boasts a specialty libation selected to incite creativity or conversations with fellow painters. When the artistic frenzy concludes, students return home with a finished masterpiece large enough to conceal any wall safe or mirror portal.

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.
