Montgomery Academy Art Students Sketch

Sketchbooks are an integral part of each art class beginning in the second grade. In September, fifth-grade students were starting "Pet in My Yard," an oil pastel drawing of their pet. At the beginning of the assignment, Erika Tracy brought a service dog, Frog, to pose for the students. Working in their sketchbooks, they made sketches of Frog in several different poses.

Guest opinion: The Jones Act is critical to Alabama and America

Our country has been through a lot in recent years, navigating a global pandemic and grappling with supply chain and energy crises that have challenged all of us. Yet through it all, the men and women of the American maritime workforce have rolled up their sleeves and gotten the job done, working day and night on tugboats and towboats through all manner of weather to deliver the commodities that build our infrastructure, power our cars, homes and businesses, and sustain our quality of life.
