Students in Smocks

Help me give my students art smocks for protecting our clothing when we are making beautiful art pieces.

My Students

We are a first-grade classroom of 21 students in a Title I school. We are all about working together, learning a lot, and having tons of fun at school!

We make sure that our students feel comfortable and loved every day at school.

All of our students receive free breakfast and lunch every day based on their socioeconomic status. At school, we try to make sure that these students have the same experiences and opportunities as other children.

The students in my classroom are special because they want so much to learn, and they strive to do their best, even if they are not able to get the support that they need at home. They come to school every day and do their best work.

My Project

In our first grade classroom we do a lot of creating. We especially love painting! Sometimes while we are creating - it can get messy. Being able to wear artist's smocks while making artwork would really help us stay cleaner and to make sure that our clothes are protected from paints that stain.

We love to paint, but we want to make sure that when we get messy, all of our clothes are protected.

Some activities that we will be able to do with these smocks on will be painting with watercolors, painting with tempera paints, using playdough, drawing with sharpies, and creating art pieces with glue.

We are hoping to get smocks so that we can still have fun creating, even if it gets messy, and still be able to protect our clothing.
