Florence Griswold Museum
The Florence Griswold Museum in Old Lyme, Connecticut, created online curriculum resources that allow elementary schools to use the museum's artwork for as primary sources. The pilot work George Henry Durrie's Seven Miles to Farmington, ca. 1853, is used to illustrate how Durrie re-purposed buildings and other compositional elements throughout his artwork.
This educational resource also puts the painting in its historical context and devotes sections to the artist's life and creative process. Two Durrie paintings from the White House Collection Jones Inn, Winter and Farmyard in Winter are featured in the artist's portfolio, a visual glossary, and interactive learning activities.
