```Of course you can avoid the graphics programming!

But I think it can have much fun!

Needs["Graphics`Colors`"]

Block[{\$DisplayFunction = Identity}, g = ParametricPlot[{Cos[y],
Sin[y]}, {y, 0, 2*Pi}, Axes -> False]];
fil[opts___] := Show[{g, Graphics[g /. Line[x_] :> {opts,
Polygon[x]}]}, AspectRatio -> 1]

fil[];
fil[Red];
fil[Blue];

And

fil[Hue[#/13]] & /@ Range[1, 10, 0.5];
SelectionMove[EvaluationNotebook[], All, GeneratedCell];;
FrontEndTokenExecute["CellGroup"]
FrontEndTokenExecute["OpenCloseGroup"]

Double click above the graphic to get an animation!

Anyway as David Park showed me you can use something more easy to
understand!

Needs["Graphics`Colors`"]

circlepoints = Table[{Cos[y],
Sin[y]} //  N, {y, 0, 2 Pi, 2Pi/100}];
Show[Graphics[ {LightCoral, Polygon[circlepoints], Black,
AbsoluteThickness[2],
Line[circlepoints]}], AspectRatio -> Automatic];
