Did you make a masterpiece in mid-November?
A bunch of Fillmore families got to at the Fillmore "Back to School" night which was held the evening of November 14th.  Parents and kids got to work on paper sculptures, brush paintings, dance routines, digital arts, violin, and ceramic busts.  Did you miss it??  You can see photos from the event on the Friends of Fillmore Website.
 

Looking for that perfect holiday gift??
If you don't know Jamie Caplinger, you should.  She's a very talented Stoddert parent who paints gorgeous portraits.  (We raffled one off at last school year's Spring Arts Show.)  As a special offer for Fillmore Arts Center families, those who purchase an artwork or commission a portrait of your loved ones before the end of the year, you will receive a 20% discount off listed prices.  PLUS Jamie will make a donation of 10% of the painting's cost directly to the Friends of Fillmore to enhance your child's artistic development.

Take a look at Jamie's website (and an image of her work below).  You can see prices under the ORDER tab and discounts will be taken off those prices.  Or go on over to her studio!  There's a HOLIDAY SHOW on Dec. 7th from 5-9pm and Dec. 8th 12-6pm at 923 F St, NW, Suite 301, right in Penn Quarter.

 
Remember to make YOUR end-of-the-year donation to the Friends of Fillmore
If you're like me, you tend to leave things to the last minute, so I TOTALLY get it.  But we've just got a month left in 2012, so we're getting down to the wire. Remember to make your tax-deductible contributions to the Friends of Fillmore.   You can easily make donations online, just visit our Donate page and PayPal will do the rest!


The year has flown!  I will check in with everyone in 2013...  Don't miss a Fillmore moment in the coming year, make sure to check the Friends of Fillmore Calendar page.

Remember, the arts make us smarter,

Kelly
