Teaching Drawing and Painting

As I prepare for every new term, I stress about how I will make the classes interesting, challenging not frightening. I need to be encouraging, when the students falter, guiding them on their artistic journey, trying to not push them too hard.
Then I worry , will my regulars keep signing up, will there be enough interest for me to make a living, will I be working for nothing, by the time I have paid the rent etc, how can I draw in new students......... 
Then suddenly, it's the end of term , it has all went swimmingly!
Today was the last day of term, of 2015s classes, students arrived laden with homemade goodies, they painted up a storm!
Here's to 2016.........fingers crossed it all goes well!
