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.

Who We Are

MUSEA - Center for Intentional Creativity® is a living Art Museum and School. 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. The Intentional Creativity Arts Guild of MUSEA-Certified educators and curators offer engaging arts programming across the world co-curating art exhibits and online classes and in-person experiences.

For more than two decades MUSEA has nurtured an Intentional Creativity cultural framework rooted in the teachings of a matriarchal art lineage of storytelling and images. Intentional Creativity is an inter-disciplinary practice weaving creative arts, sciences, somatics, transpersonal psychology and archeo-mythology. A core premise is that creativity is a basic human right that enables every person to know how they think, feel, and therefore act. 

MUSEA extends an invitation to all beings to live with connection and intention by choosing to bring love and awareness into everything we create and our relationship with the universe. Together we can remember the past, live in the present with intention and dream the future. 

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.
