Studio Arts in Barcelona

Metàfora’s Studio Arts Programs offer short or long term stays (intimate group size) in an old factory complex located in Sants, one of Barcelona’s authentic, non-touristic areas. Students can apply from starter’s level to advanced art practice. From January 2018 a new modality of Spanish and Career orientation is available to our year or semester students.

Our tutors and academic staff belong to a group of internationally acclaimed artists and curators, and there is 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 1.300 m2 connected by beautiful outdoor patios,  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.
