Designate a Yalla Art Day

Roll up your sleeves and get creative with your family this fall. Yalla suggests you make one day a month a Yalla Art Day to explore the arts in family-friendly settings.


Saadiyat Island is jam-packed with ways to get your art on, so why not plan a day designed for exploring your creativity as a family? Beyond the Louvre Abu Dhabi, there are many other ways to explore the artsy side of Abu Dhabi life on this the island. Here’s Yalla’s advice for the first day of your new monthly tradition.

Start your day exploring the galleries at Manarat Al Saadiyat, then head into the Art Studio and to create artwork inspired by what you saw. Then drop into the Manarat Al Saadiyat’s new Italian restaurant Larte, which serves family-friendly art you can eat in a chic setting.

An afternoon visit to NYU Abu Dhabi’s Art Gallery’s new autumn exhibition Ways of Seeing is the perfect follow up to your artful morning. The exhibition invites viewers to explore the notion that there is no one ‘correct’ way to look at art. Every exhibition has a corresponding youth guide illustrated by a local artist, which allows for a self-guided, family-friendly engagement with the exhibition.
