Sorry we have been inactive!

I put this blog up and then promptly forgot how to access it.  I finally figured out how to get it up and running again.  I apologize to all that it is not more current.  I will be working on that over the next couple of days.  Be patient.

We have many fun and exciting things planned for Sycamore Arts this year.
