At Red Bank Catholic High School, art classes are designed to teach the four components of art education: production, criticism, history, and aesthetics. One of the most important needs satisfied by the visual arts is the need for personal expression and communication. Art is the special expression of ideas, feelings and values in perceptible forms, not only through painting and drawing but through other media as well such as photography, crafts, ceramics and printmaking. At Red Bank Catholic, students have numerous opportunities to find their creative selves either through taking fine arts classes for credit or by participating in fine art extracurricular activities.

Art Club offers visual art experiences for both the serious art student as well as the student who just wants to enjoy and appreciate art. The club meets during activity periods in the Fine & Performing Art Center. Members also volunteer for local organizations to promote the arts in various ways such as face painting, window painting, and arts advocacy.
The Emerald Yearbook
Joining the staff of the RBC yearbook, The Emerald, is the perfect opportunity for students to explore an interest in publication, photography and layout.
