Florence Griswold Museum Field Trip

Students recently went on a field trip to the Florence Griswold Museum in Old Lyme, CT.  At the beginning of the 20th century, Miss Florence Griswold’s boardinghouse became America’s most famous summer art colony.  While on the trip, students visited the historic boardinghouse, toured the photography exhibit at the Krieble Gallery and explored the hand-crafted faerie homes that were on display as part of the annual Wee Faerie Village event.  The students also experienced what it was like to be an Impressionist artist, as they painted a landscape ‘plein air’ on the banks of the river.
