Art & Process

Summer Intensive

Art Therapy and Studio Arts in Barcelona

For almost 20 years, Metàfora has attracted an international community of students 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 masters degree.

Although most courses of art therapy are taught in Spanish, two of them -the art therapy foundations courses- art and process and summer intensive are offered in English. Teachers and tutors are qualified art therapists and artists with an extensive working experience.

Art & Process, is a three month F/T course taking place twice a year, in the autumn and the spring, and the Summer Intensive is a two week F/T course taking place during the last two weeks of July.

Art & Process

This course is a 3 month 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 on this course have a personal studio space, an individual tutor and access to all the classes in tools and techniques offered on the studio arts program.

Summer Intensive

The Summer Intensive in Art Therapy is Metàfora’s well established introductory course. 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 summer in Barcelona, students are exposed to practical workshop, 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.
