The Enduring Influence of a Matriarchal Creative Lineage Sparks a Global Art Movement

The Intentional Creativity Movement is one of the most well-established art movements in the world today.

We are a museum and school founded in love.

Curating Consciousness through Creativity is what we do.

MUSEA is plural for Museum. We think of ourselves as many muses, from many lands, with many voices and many hands!

We invite you to become a Musea Member and be a part of raising consciousness and building community rooted in self-expression.

A Message from our Co-Founder SHILOH SOPHIA

For all of us who have been told No too many times.

No seat at the table?

Women are making the table itself.

There is a seat with your name on it.

No representation at the gallery or museum?

We are founding our own museum owned and run by artists for artists.

No resources to take education to the next level?

We have micro-loans, scholarships and gifted programming.

No community that has space for you to be your wildest you?

We are a community that is radically inclusive of self-expressed women.

No space to share your voice of wisdom and uncanny insight?

We are willing to witness you as you discover your voice.

No access through that proverbial glass ceiling or wall?

We have moved into another building entirely and left hold structures to die. (BOOM)

No idea how to get more conscious about emergent ideas of diversity and equity?

We are inviting you to conversations that challenge, empower, educate and integrate.

Not enough progress on healing your trauma with resiliency?

We will share teachings with you that when practiced, support next level healing.

Nowhere do you see your face and body-type shared with respect?

We will show you what we see, and invite you to include yourself in your own image-making.

Nowhere to tell your story?

Join us to share your story in the company of caring listeners.

No idea how to move from complacency and overwhelm into active compassion?

Our emergent community of creatives leans into quantum levels of loving.

This is a place where we are YES!

Are you called?

Come to Musea, a colorful emergent landscape of many muses around the world.

Paint yourself into the picture. Create a future that includes what matters to you.

Here at Musea – you are invited to include yourself as part of our living installation.

To discover and be responsible for your piece of red thread.

Here you learn to witness others and awaken yourself by choice.

We are an emergent community of Intentional Creatives, crafting a culture of connection through voices from many lands, making art with many hands. Find yourself here by taking your seat at the council. We have been waiting for you. This isn’t an ordinary museum with archives hailing the past accomplishments of artist’s gone by. This is Musea.

A Living Museum of Love!

Who We Are

We are a global community of creatives, students and educators who practice the Intentional Creativity® Methodology. We make with intention, mindfulness and love, infusing our creations with awareness. We believe that practicing art with this framework invites each one of us to become the curators of our own consciousness. We come from a matriarchal lineage of women creatives that has been called an 'enduring influence' going back over 100 years of both family and teachers. To learn more visit the Lineage page.

We believe Intentional Creativity is a sacramental approach to making art in all mediums that can lead to transformational experiences, social justice, community connection and chosen awakening. We have seen this to be true for our tens of thousands of Intentional Creativity participants - come on over to the Red Thread Cafe!

Are you seeking a community of creatives? Would you like a dedicated art practice with powerful consistent teachings designed to call your own voice forward? You may find yourself at home with us here at Musea!

Creating with intention is a sacred act. A consecration. A celebration. An honoring of yourself and your life. All beings have always created. We have mixed up creativity with talent. Talent may be for the few. Creativity is for everyone!

The reach of our work is far beyond our knowing and we believe will be carried into the millennia with teachers, both present and future. They will bring Intentional Creativity into their homes, schools, wellness and mental health centers, and prison systems. Our methodology can be used any place awakening consciousness through creativity is possible to lift up others and bring healing to our planet.
