The Summer Course at Metàfora is famous for its international element, attracting students and professionals from all creative fields.

Metàfora maintains relations with many universities worldwide, where Art therapy is offered as a discipline, and we can guide and help our students with advice on which training program to opt for in the future.

In our Art Therapy courses, you will be exposed to both theoretical modules and practical experience.

You will also participate in workshops where the focus is on the art making process itself and its potential.

Typical Daily Activities:
The day starts with daily seminars covering the basic theoretical foundations of Art Psychotherapy as well as a range of real-life cases with clients from different collectives.

After this initial common space, the participants divide into groups according to choice of workshop (most of which last two days). 

You can combine classes according to your own interests, and the idea is to offer different simultaneous experiences for the student group.
