BBC Your Paintings have launched an initiative that aims to introduce arts to children. Under the scheme, original paintings by LS Lowry, JMW Turner, and Claude Monet, which are worth an estimated £14m, will be exhibited in classrooms accompanied by security guards and curators.
Current artists will also go to specific schools to lead workshops. These include Bob and Roberta Smith, who said: "All children deserve not only to appreciate and understand art, but also to have hands on first-hand experience of working with materials.
"How exciting to have an amazing artwork in your school then to go to the art room or classroom and make something amazing yourself."
A total of 27 artworks will be exhibited in primary and secondary schools across the UK between October 1 and October 18.
