Sag Harbor teenager Luca Vermeer went to Williamsburg, Massachusetts, for two weeks this summer and returned with a new skill. Ms. Vermeer studied innovative mediums of arts and crafts at Snow Farm Summer, a program of The New England Craft Program.

Over the two-week program, Ms. Vermeer worked for six hours each day under the guidance of an artist. She put in additional time working in the studio. She lived with artists and other creative teenagers on a 50-acre 18th century farm and took weekend trips to Mass MOCA and the studio of renowned glass artist Josh Simpson.

During her stay, Ms. Vermeer created an extensive body of work and learned weaving and flameworking, the craft of melting glass on a tabletop torch to make small sculptures and glass beads.
