Art Studio

Art Studio at Manarat Al Saadiyat is a multi-disciplinary arts space designed to bring hands-on arts education programmes, art classes, drop-in sessions, workshops and outreach initiatives to students, adults, children and families in the Emirate.

Art Studio has dedicated spaces for all ages to work both collaboratively and individually. Fully equipped studios for ongoing classes, an open plan collaborative space for adults and interactive features make Art Studio the perfect place for creating art.

Art Studio also hosts an arts supply store, making it easier for young artists to continue their practice at home! Join us in the act of creating!


The mission of Art Studio is to introduce people to the transformative power of the arts by providing casual, drop-in spaces for the community to work alongside a team of talented teaching artists. The arts education programmes continually adapt and respond to the needs of the community and dedicated outreach programmes such as helping teenagers develop their art portfolios, or proposing hands-on classes for people of determination continue to thrive.


Founded in 2010, Art Studio began in a small space in Manarat Al Saadiyat and has steadily expanded as participants to the arts education programmes have increased. Outgrowing the Art Studio facility and expanding into the new space has been a natural progression and a reflection of the witnessed success in reaching out to a wider audience and growing the cultural community of Abu Dhabi.
