Cherish Flieder’s class, Illustration Marketing was by far one of the most valuable classes that I attended in my time at RMCAD. She has an absolutely abundant knowledge and is willing to share all of it with her students. As an illustrator working in the field, I use skills that Cherish taught me almost daily. She not only cares individually about each of her students, but she also treats them as peers right from the get-go. She is a highly accomplished illustrator in the field and she backs up that experience with great communication and projects that are relevant and fun. I wish I could take her class over and over again. I highly recommend Cherish’s classes.
