ART FACTORY IN BARCELONA

Metàfora is an art school in Barcelona located in an old factory complex. The space is one of the hidden gems in Barcelona, a privilege for any art student with imagination and flair for cracks and unpolished details. It is close to the centre but placed in one of Barcelona’s authentic, non-touristic areas.

The premises count three ample outdoor patios: The small courtyard with a greenhouse space for project work, the large courtyard with the turtle pond and several seating arrangements, the back entrance with its lovely atmosphere of a forgotten Barcelona.

In addition to large areas with personal studios, Metàfora houses several workshops (welding, woodwork), a kiln, class rooms and project spaces. For specific projects like painting on grand scale, installation building, photo shoots or video projection, students can book additional space to work in.

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.

EXPERIENCE BARCELONA’S CULTURAL LIFE

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

Metàfor offers a 3 year Training Program, where each level can be coursed separately. Students apply to initial level, intermediate level or advanced level for short or long term (6 weeks, one semester, academic year or entire program).
