Stop Harry Hawk, the art thief from stealing some of the world's most famous paintings!

The 2012 Twitter Art Treasure Hunt takes place during Digital Art Week - 23rd-27th April 2012. To get involved, follow @Leo_the_V on Twitter or use the hashtag #artweek12.

How does the Art Treasure Hunt work?

This year there's an Art Thief about and it's up to us to stop him stealing some really famous paintings. To do that we need your help.

We're working with InterVole (the International Police group in charge of protecting famous paintings) and together we want to try to stop the Art Thief, Harry Hawk (@harryhawk1 on Twitter) from stealing those really famous paintings.

Luckily, InterVole managed to find out which paintings he wants to steal and they've asked me to paint "fake" versions of them so he can steal the fakes instead. We'll bug the "fake" paintings and then we can catch him!

This is where you come in. We've nearly got the "fake" paintings finished but we're missing out on a couple of details. We need you to go and visit the Galleries they are in to help me finish them off.

"How can we do that? We're in school!", I hear you say. Easily, because all of the paintings can be found in the online Galleries in the Google Art Project. You won't even have to leave your desk. If you can find all of the missing details, then we can catch Harry Hawk and InterVole will give you a Certificate to recognise your great work as an InterVole  Junior Art Detective.
