A NEW art club is set to launch in North Ayrshire and Inverclyde with the aim of getting more people involved in creative industries.

The group aims to bring together professional, semi-professional and budding artists from across the regions.

It will provide a wide range of educational, social art-based activities and opportunities which will include lunches, talks, workshops, classes, demonstrations, events, and trips.

Organiser Kitty Jamieson has started the club to support and increase the development and community participation in the arts industry.

There will be a monthly meeting and newsletter for members to keep up to date with upcoming activities, events and gatherings.

The group is for those 18 and over and a yearly membership fee will cost £65.
