ART THERAPY COURSES IN BARCELONA

EXTENSIVE TRAINING PROGRAMS IN ART THERAPY

For over 20 years Metàfora has been offering art therapy courses in Barcelona and online. Our school has attracted an international community of students from all over the world for its courses and workshops in Art Therapy.

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, several of them are offered in English:

CREATIONS FACTORY

Metàfora is an educational center that opened its doors in 1999 and offers an extensive training program in Art Therapy.

Housed in an old charismatic factory complex, located in the quiet neighborhood of Sants in the heart of Barcelona, very close to Plaza España, Montjuic Park and other places of interest.

The late 19th century building is a gem for our students, a labyrinth of spaces and personal studio spaces.

The facilities of the school entice the students to forget for a moment that we are in a city: a patio with a greenhouse, another with a pond and fish (turtle included), a back alley with plants and pots, altogether a place to enjoy the charming atmosphere of a forgotten Barcelona.

    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

    Autumn Introductory Art Therapy Course

    The Autumn Introductory art therapy course is a foundation course, aimed at people that want to get to know what art therapy is about. It can be taken both as personal experience or as a profesional standpoint. With a clear experiential approach, the course allows students to have a fully satisfactory experience in an intensive format of 5 days.

    The course is held in November and it is offered in 2 different formats: online and blended. It contains a blend of practical workshops and theory classes.

    At the end of the course, students get a certificate that specifies the credits completed. This certificate allows to continue with the art therapy training: the Advanced Diploma in Art Therapy & Community Art (level 2) and the Master’s Degree in Art Therapy (level 3).

    Winter Introductory Course in Art Therapy

    This introductory course in art therapy is an excellent occasion to see first hand the potential of the art making to get to explore the inner world as well as the first step of a further training in Art Therapy.

    Like the rest of Metàfora’s courses it is both an introduction to the world of Art Therapy and an opportunity to meet like-minded people.

    The teachers of the Winter Introductory Art Therapy Course are art therapists working as clinicians in different institutions and all of them are members of the ATe (Spanish Professional Association of Art Therapists).

    Advanced Diploma in Art Therapy (Postgraduate Level)

    The Advanced Diploma in Art Therapy & Community Art is the second step of the full training in Art Therapy. The theory, key piece in the course, serves as a complement to the experience acquired in the experiential groups of Art Therapy, the role-play groups, the tutorials and the volunteering.

    What will you learn?

    • To use your own art making process as a tool for self exploration
    • To explore the expressive possibilities of different art media
    • The theoretical and experiential basis of relational art psychotherapy
    • The differences of distinct art therapy approaches
    • To set up a community art project
    • The foundations of: Psychopathology, Development Psychology, Mentalisation, Relational Psychoanalysis

    Summer Intensive (Introductory Course in Art Therapy)

    Among our art therapy courses in Barcelona, the Summer Intensive is the most iconic one. This course gathers people with different backgrounds but shared interests in art, art therapy and psychology.  While some may be considering to enrol in an art therapy training other may just want to dive into an experiential learning experience of art and therapy.

    The Summer Intensive is structured similarly to a conference with different activities like: art workshops, experiential groups, theoretical talks, case presentations, etc taking place simultaneously through the day.

    Barcelona’s cultural activity in July adds to the course providing an exceptional and unique cultural background.
