Art School in Barcelona:
International Workshop

A full-time studio arts program in Barcelona


The International Workshop is Metàfora's unique art program, founded in 1999 in Barcelona, Spain. The art school is housed in an old factory building and atracts artists and art-students from all over the world, each group with 20-25 different nationalities.

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.

While some students are attracted to the program in order to try new techniques and ways of working, other students come to mature their artistic discourse and spend time on in-depth studio investigation. The course structure varies for each student, depending on the individual needs and expectations. Students can choose between range of classes in different techniques (taught in English) and our team of professional artists are available for personalised tutoring and advice.

The International Workshop accomodates students with different levels and previous experience. Thus, the course admits students on Postgraduate Diploma level, Studio Certificate or Foundation Studies. The program varies in length from short-term to a one- or two-year program.
