The goal of the Lake Champlain Summer Arts Institute is to bring together peers with similar interests in a fun, engaging slate of workshops not being offered anywhere else in the region.

After recognizing a need for summer enrichment in the arts, the English and Humanities Departments at CCC developed a program so that students ages 12-17 could enhance their existing skills in the arts or explore new areas of interest.

The 2018 week-long institute offered sessions in anime, painting, photography, a capella singing, auditioning for musicals, learning to play the ukulele, and writing short stories. The workshops were taught by experienced professionals who practice their craft in the region. Lake Champlain Summer Arts Institute students got hands-on experience and professional guidance to add to their writing and art portfolios. At the end of the week, a catered barbecue was held for the students and their families. The institute closed with student performances and a showcase of student work that was open to the community.
In addition to leaving the institute with new experiences, knowledge and friends, the LCSAI students also brought home a t-shirt, canvas tote bag, lanyard, and a certificate (signed by the College president).
