label levels:

There is currently no available "Beginner" label. The following is the default level label: Kenneth Stinson, a longtime resident of Greenfield, Massachusetts, arrived in Greenfield in 1931. Soon after, he began a series of paintings of the area's seven covered bridges. Five of these bridges were swept away in the 1936 flood, and this bridge burned in 1975. (It has since been replaced.) The painting was done with a palette knife, a technique he learned at the Massachusetts College of Art. On his arrival, he became Creative Arts Director at the Greenfield High School, where he worked until 1936. Also in 1931, he helped found the Deerfield Valley Artists Association.
