Griffin taught fine arts at Washington State College, now WSU, 1924-58 and was chair of the fine arts department for most of those years. He traveled to southern Mexico to further his education in 1935 before founding the Nespelem Art Colony in 1937, which gave many students the opportunity to expand their painting repertoire.
