The ground floor level expands to a boutique displaying a curated selection of the world’s leading brands of Fine Arts & Crafts, suitable to shop for beginners, artists, and professionals of all ages. The beautiful shelves also leave room fora collection of artworks and handcrafts from local and L’Atelier Des Arts artists, giving customers a chance to find unique decorative items for their homes, or make great gifts for their loved ones.



Up the stairs, the multi-concept space extends to fully equipped work stations and organized workshops, supported by a large variety of trained and professional artists and crafters. Covering more than 25 different arts and crafts activities for both kids and adults, for amateurs and professionals, the talented teachers are ready to share their passion.



Part café, part boutique, L’Atelier Des Arts is designed as a home away from home, with an outdoor garden seating area, hand-painted walls, handmade decorative furniture and a relaxed, laid-back ambiance.One’s creative experience would not be complete without Café de L’Atelier’s flavorful menu, including a homemade selection of breakfast and pastries, a large selection of gourmet hot and exotic beverages, all prepared in-house using the finest ingredients and presented in a cozy, homy setting.

What inspired you to set up the centre?

I’ve been painting on porcelain for 11 years, and took courses in Lebanon. I gave so many exhibitions from my house. Then I decided to be a bit more professional and that’s where the idea came from. I realised whenever you have to buy something for art you can’t find it in Abu Dhabi or Dubai. You have to go to Lebanon (and fill your suitcase!) or buy online. But I want people to be able to go and get materials immediately – the day they want. Access to art materials is not sufficient in the Emirates. I think L’Atelier des Arts has the biggest variety of products now.
