My HS students, who use acrylic, don't think it's cool to wear the aprons
I've provided until they drop a brush in their laps. I _live_ in one. A
great product that works on a lot of stains is called Kiss Off; it'll get
most of the paint out if you follow the directions and get to it when
it's still fresh. It'll even diminish India ink drips.

I can't remember what age you teach, but a good supply of aprons or, for
little ones, big shirts helps a lot.
