Art 'aprons' for school that are really just shirts or tshirts

I would be grateful for advice please.

DS1 starts school soon and has to take an art apron, but this is just meant to be an old oversized shirt or tshirt thats easy for him to put on/take off on his own.

My friend with a DS in the year above says they all just follow this even though the paint soaks straight through onto their uniform.

It seems daft to me but am happy to be seen to 'comply' for the time being rather than rocking the boat and getting a PVC apron. But would it (a) be terribly PFB to wash the shirt in Nikwax (waterproofing stuff for fleeces) and (b) would it work anyway?

Or is there a better option (c) that hasn't occured to me?

Thanks

Ours wear these. They're nylon so more flexible than pvc and do up at the front with velcro - easy to put on. But protect better than a shirt.

I'd use whatever you like - who cares what other parents think (feeling rebellious)
