Elena Kucharik, one of the original illustrators of the Care Bears, spoke with Jane Ryan Elementary School Brownies recently about how she got started as an artist. She taught the girls how to draw their own Care Bears. Kucharik is the grandmother of Jane Ryan student, Emelia Field. Her visit as a professional illustrator tied in with the Jane Ryan second grade study of careers and community helpers this month.
