Art School in Barcelona

International Workshop, a full-time studio arts course

The International Workshop is Metàfora’s unique art program, founded in 1999 in Barcelona, Spain.
Students get their own studio-space in an old industrial warehouse and are offered total immersion in art and culture in Barcelona though studio-visits and taking part in gallery exhibitions. The art school is housed in an old factory building and attracts artists and art-students from all over the world.

Short term stays on the International Workshop

Not everybody has the possibility ‘to tear out an entire year of the calendar and fly off to Spain’.
We understand that. Therefore, we offer the possibility of shorter stays on the International Workshop. This option is a more affordable, yet intense and a concentrated way of savouring the course. Overseas students on short stays do not need to apply for a student visa, and can use a 3 month tourist visa. Click here to open the pdf of our next short term stay.

… Working with people from all over the world is probably the greatest aspect of Metàfora. The connections you build with the peers are not only beneficial for the development of your practice, but also for your individual growth …
