Flexible and independent Art School in Barcelona
Metàfora’s contemporary art activities consist of a full time studio-arts program, the International Workshop.
The International Workshop is a 4 year multidisciplinary studio arts program for students from starter’s level to advanced art practice. Guided by an experienced group of internationally acclaimed artists and curators, students can choose to take the entire training or embark on short term stays from one year down to 6-7 weeks.
Our students build their home in the middle of a friendly, inspiring and intimate community, where artistic freedom is the center of the experience. Metàfora is housed in an old factory complex of more than 1.000 m2, where all students have their own studio spaces. The course offers total immersion in art and culture in Barcelona though studio-visits and taking part in gallery exhibitions.
Classes are in English with 25+ nationalities in the student group.
