Challenge #5: Draw an Instructional Comic

Our challenge this week at 52 Comic Challenges is to draw an instructional comic.

I ask each of my students to bring in an old shirt from home to use as a paint smock when they come to art class. It's just one old shirt that they can keep in their home room locker and bring each time. You'd be amazed at how few bring them in, even after sending notes home, etc. Yet I still get notes from parents who are upset about paint on their children's clothing!

I made this instructional comic to send home with my students to remind them to bring a smock. Hopefully it's a fun way to get their attention and help them remember. We'll see if it works!
