Art Therapy Foundation courses in Barcelona

For almost 20 years Metàfora has attracted an international community of students from all over the world for its courses and workshops in Art and Art Therapy.

Housed in an old and charismatic factory complex. Metàfora’s Art Therapy department offers a wide range of courses from introductory level to an independent university level MA degree. Although most courses of art therapy are taught in Spanish, two of them, Art and Process and the Summer Intensive are also offered in English.

Art & Process

Upcoming: 26th February– 16th of April 2018

This course is a 6 week full time training, which combines the traditional studio arts atmosphere of Metàfora’s art courses with theory and teaching methodology of its Art Therapy department.

All students of A&P have a personal studio space, an individual tutor and access to all the classes in tools and techniques offered on the studio arts program. It is a chance to learn the basics of art therapy while having an intensive studio practice.

Summer Intensive

The Summer Intensive is a two weeks F/T Foundation Course in Art Therapy that has been on the run since 2009. The last half of July has gathered a colorful and international crowd of students and professionals in our creative oasis.

Making most of the joyful cultural summer in Barcelona, students are exposed to experiential workshops, talks and daily Art Therapy seminars in an intensive format of morning to afternoons.

The art making process mobilizes our inner self involving the somatic, emotional and rational, and triggering up a particular mode of thought which requires special attention.
