Metàfora’s Studio Arts Programs cover four different levels from starter’s level to advanced art practice.
Our tutors and academic staff belong to a group of internationally acclaimed artists and curators, and there is a possibility of studying short term for a semester, or even down to six weeks to seven weeks.
Metàfora offers a friendly, inspiring, and intimate community, where all our students can feel at home and comfortable. The school 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 more than 25 nationalities in the student group.
The Foundation Program is designed for young artists and art students who want to explore their own creative potential. Whether it is about kick-starting your art education or living an old dream, this course gives space for experimentation, reflection and learning. All students get a personal studio. In a fun and inspiring community, we introduce new ways of working and offer our students different exhibition experiences and exposure to the art world.
Metàfora also offers a complete Training Program for students who wish to pursue a career as artists. This option can be considered as a valid alternative to a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts (BFA). Our students often come from university studies in other fields.
The three years of the program are defined as separate courses with differentiated levels. Any of the levels can be undertaken independently (admission according to general admission requirements).
