The format for the event this February will remain unchanged from previous years – as we are proud to host one of Washington’s most unique and anticipated fundraisers with no dinner or lengthy speechifying – just a reception and then the chance to watch one of the six nominated and award-winning films that we screen that night.

TK-DC MONUMENTS 2014 ART SHOW

2013 was another successful year for Tracy’s Kids and we celebrated with our annual art show at the Carroll Square Gallery in downtown Washington, DC, which runs through January 24.

Below are some examples of the art being showcased, as well as information about the gallery. If you have the opportunity to stop by, we promise you won’t be disappointed.

This year we were inspired by our friend and fellow artist Kari Kant and her use of the American Flag in her pieces. We took this idea and created our own American flags earlier in the year that were showcased at her June art opening. The kids continued this idea and expanded to creating more art based around the Washington, DC landscape, and created a number of pieces with this theme. These will also be shown at our ninth annual And the Winner Is fundraiser on February 25, 2014.

Spring Snowflakes!

Seeing snow on top of the daffodils is really confusing! In celebration of the surprising weather, we made Spring Snowflakes at the clinic today.

Snow!

Snow!

What you need

Those round paper coffee filters are great for this project. You will need coffee filters, water-based (non-permanent) markers, a brush and some water, and scissors.

 First, draw a beautiful spring scene on your coffee filter—those daffodils that were so sunny and yellow yesterday, a rainbow, a rose, or just a colorful design.

  • Then dip a paintbrush in just plain water and drip or paint the water on your drawing
  • Watch the colors run together and blend—making your drawing into a soft-edged, melty design
  • Spread your snowflakes out to dry
  • When dry, fold them in half, then in half again, and half again and cut little notches and designs along the folded edges.
  • When you open them up, you will have colorful concentric snowflake designs. Remember, no two snowflakes are alike, so it doesn’t really matter how you cut them.
