Since Bloom's inception, we've heard this from adults in our community: "I wish I could go to Bloom!"

You can't turn back time, but you CAN join our wonderful learning community! Join our teachers and leadership group for one or more of our summer evening classes and find a group of adults that enjoyed the Bloom Community Supported Education series as well as maker space activities, a story slam, fitness events and music performances.

All classes will take place at our Normandy Village location: 1100 N. Beech St., Building #11, Normal, IL.
