Artistic Media tool?
You can draw directly with it, but it can also be applied to an existing Curve.
I've been trying to apply it to an existing curve, but have not figured out how to do it. :-) Drawing with the artistic media tool is very freehand, I'd like a pretty precise arc...any other suggestions...

When I first tried to do it, I also found it difficult - because there is no "Apply" button on the Property Bar that is displayed for Artistic Media.
With the Artistic Media tool selected, click on the Curve to select it, then try adjusting the Stroke Width in the Property Bar that is displayed for Artistic Media. The change causes Artistic Media to be applied or update.
That's one way to do it. Another way is to use the Artistic Media docker, which makes it easier to see/apply presets, brushes, etc., but doesn't provide access to all of the settings that the Property Bar does.
you may use 2 circle to do it, its easy and you can manage the thickness, then use Trim. and fill with color then Trim again with a rectangle.
Yes, that is another way to build this sort of shape.
Smart Fill can also be used to create the shape. You can keep the original shapes, so it's easy to modify them to create a different shape.
