Our creative root system begins over 90 years ago


In the 1930ies a philosophy for creating art with mindfulness was nurtured through the creation of books, sculpture, painting, drawing, printmaking woodwork, clay, fiber and fashion design. The approach was passed from hand to hand until it reached our co-founder, Shiloh Sophia McCloud.

For more than two decades Shiloh Sophia has nurtured an Intentional Creativity cultural framework rooted in the teachings of a matriarchal art lineage of storytelling and imagery. With her husband Jonathan McCloud they have stewarded Intentional Creativity is an inter-disciplinary practice weaving creative arts, healing arts somatic sciences, transpersonal psychology and archaeomythology.

Today we are
in collaboration with our museum, Intentional Creativity Foundation, 501(c)3, our gallery Musette Atelier and the Intentional Creativity Guild of Creatives to bring you, Intentional Creativity.®

Today MUSEA is home to an inter-generational and multicultural collective of emerging and experienced creatives, healers, and leaders.

The MUSEA community is a global art movement dedicated to self-expression as a method for consciousness and compassion through the arts.

We are one of the world's largest art movements engaging with over 100,000 people by 2005 and today serving tens of thousands of women per month.

Community Calls over the past 20 years

There are currently over 500 Intentional Creativity Teachers worldwide. We see this map as lighting up the world, empowering more people to claim their self-expression and live a life more aligned with who they are through the power of Intentional Creativity.

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.

MUSEA is by artists for artists. So often the museums and schools that we have grown up admiring offer very little access to the content and curriculum to those outside the 'inner circle'.

At Musea our collaborative organizations are created by artists for artists, and if that lights up the colors in your spectrum, join us. Together we can remember the past, live in the present with intention and create the future.
