GAP YEAR?

ART FACTORY IN BARCELONA

Metàfora’s Studio Arts Programs comprise a 3 year multidisciplinary studio arts program for students from starter’s level to advanced art practice.

The art school is housed in an old factory complex (all students get their own studio-space) close to the center of Barcelona and attracts artists and art-students from all over the world. Classes are taught in English with 25+ nationalities in each group.

The program is designed in studio-blocks starting 5 times a year, and students can join the course for any length of time between 6 weeks and 3 years.

CLASSES AND STUDIO WORK

The program contains a wide range of classes in different tools and techniques including clay sculpting, welding, screen printing, installation, performance, as well as a weekly session of life-drawing. All classes are taught in English.

All tools and techniques workshops are optional, and when not in class, students work independently in their studio spaces.

Initial to Intermediate and Advanced levels

The first year contains Metàfora’s Foundation Program and is designed for students who approach art for the first time (high school art credits or similar). Here, the focus is on experimentation and play, testing the creative potential of each student.

Students who are interested in a career as practicing artists can embark on the intermediate and advanced level of Metàfora’s Training Program. Students are supported in their professional art production and introduced to curators and gallerists. The focus is on individual production, exhibition activity and critical thinking.

EXPERIENCE BARCELONA’S CULTURAL LIFE

The course offers total immersion in art and culture in Barcelona though studio-visits and taking part in gallery exhibitions.

Our students get insider’s access to galleries and cultural institutions all around the city. With the help of our faculty of acclaimed artists and curators, the aim is to teach our students to formulate their ideas and talk publicly about their art.

WHAT OUR STUDENTS SAY…

“…Thanks to the environment at Metàfora and the people involved with bringing it to life, I feel better equipped to pursue my goals in art (and in general) now than when I arrived in Barcelona…”

Aaron Salm, Massachusetts

 “… I loved the course – teachers are charismatic, each with a different style of communication with students. This really helped me to see myself from different angles, experiment and try new things, made ​​me feel that nothing is impossible…”

Choi Gui Rang, Korea

NEXT SHORT TERM

A Short Term stay on Metàfora’s Studio Arts Programs is the ideal way of joining the program for those who cannot make a long term commitment.

Because the stay is less than 3 months students from outside the EU can join on a tourist visa, saving time and effort on boresome paperwork.

SHORT TERM STAY: 17th of February 2020
