The National Gallery has an unrivalled collection of Western European paintings dating from 1250 to 1900, including works by Leonardo da Vinci, Rembrandt, Van Gogh and Monet. These pictures belong to the nation and admission to see them is free.

Using paintings by these and other artists as a starting point, the National Gallery worked closely with professional authors, poets, scriptwriters and a journalist since 2003 to develop literacy work with secondary schools from the London boroughs of Hackney, Islington and Brent.

Here we share some results from these collaborations. They include outcomes from masterclasses with Children's Laureate Jacqueline Wilson, novelists Malorie Blackman and Kevin Brooks, poets John Hegley and Margot Henderson and journalist Brian Flynn.
