Other ideas...

Churches can be a great stimulus for art work. Why not approach the art department of a school to offer the building as a resource? Offer to link it with a cross curricular project involving history and RE.
Make sure the children and teachers are welcomed when they come to visit, and take the opportunity to talk about special features of the building, and their meaning for Christian life today.
You could offer to put on a display in the church, or a special service where they bring their paintings.
Here’s an example of art work from one church.
