Al Qattara Arts Centre

Al Qattara Arts Centre plays a unique role in Al Ain’s artistic and cultural scene. It is not only a place for people to see art, but also a place to create it. 

 The Centre was established in 2011 as a venue where culture and the creative arts can be studied, practiced and developed. It boasts a permanent venue for archaeological and heritage exhibits, and studios for art classes, while the onsite art gallery displays work by expatriate and Emirati artists.  

The Dry Studio is a classroom for learning music and handicrafts, while the Wet Studio offers drawing and painting lessons. The centre is equipped with a Pottery Studio, and a Calligraphy Studio.

The Centre also is one of Al Ain’s leading venues for events, exhibitions and occasions that explore the region’s cultural heritage.
