The reach of the Intentional Creativity Movement is global. There are students in more than 70 countries around the world...
Founded in 2010 by Shiloh Sophia McCloud, Color of Woman Intentional Creativity Teacher Training has graduated 500 Certified Intentional Creativity Teachers from all over the globe. Intentional Creativity simply means creating with clear intention. Mindfulness in creativity charges the creative session and alchemizes it into a tool for self-expression, which creates healing.
Color of Woman is "a Quest to the Heart of your Soul Work" (Shiloh Sophia McCloud). Exploring 6 personal archetypes, you will excavate your content -- that which you are here to cause and create. Through this experience, you will gain access to your sacred information and unlock the doors to who you wish to serve and how you envision yourself serving those beloveds.
Candidates for Color of Woman Intentional Creativity Teacher Training include those who work in healing professions: healers, therapists, artists, medical professionals, and teachers. However, the Method is open to all who seek to use art as an expression of Self as well as a tool for self-healing.
Those who seek to become educators in the Intentional Creativity Method are well supported throughout their Color of Woman Teacher Training and beyond. Graduates enjoy optional listing in the Educators Directory -- a directory of certified teachers and their locations around the world. Participation in the Intentional Creativity Guild offers dditional trainings, virtual conferences, and a resource library to help graduates continue developing their Intentional Creativity offerings to their beloveds.
No matter whether you are a seasoned artist with a well curated body of work, or a beginning artist who hasn't thought about creating a body of work before now, by the end of your Color of Woman training you will have a firmly established a body of work centered around Intentional Creativity. This body of work informs your interactions with the group of beloveds that are in your circle.
"This quest isn’t for the faint hearted. You need vision and a warrior spirit to delve into the inner depths of your soul. Be willing to go where the paintbrush leads, and fear not the glaze…. say Yes…"

About Shiloh Sophia
Shiloh Sophia lives life as a great adventure! A renaissance woman who communicates her philosophy through painting, storytelling, illustrations and metacognitive drawing. For 27 years she has dedicated herself to her soul work - the practice of creativity as a path of transformation and consciousness. Starting as a gallery owner, she has represented her own work, as well as hundreds of women artists during her career as a working artist and curator. Her devotion to sacred art-making, and specifically medicine painting and metacognitive drawing, is a personal spiritual practice.
Her intuitive and contemplative painting process called Intentional Creativity® was eventually developed into teachings and trainings which have been shared with thousands worldwide. She was able to provide groundbreaking research on Intentional Creativity® as a pathway to healing through self-expression. Shiloh Sophia’s message of ‘creating with intention’ has now reached hundreds of thousands, with consistent monthly enrollment of hundreds of new students in Intentional Creativity art classes. Intentional Creativity is taught in university MA and Ph.D. programs, at the United Nations, and by over 400 Intentional Creativity Teachers and Coaches worldwide. Shiloh Sophia’s online community has over 10,000 women with a consistent engagement from over 85% of members. The Intentional Creativity Movement may be one of the largest, most well established art movements the world has ever seen. More than a style and a philosophy, it is a practice, called by many ‘a lifestyle’.
At the core of Shiloh Sophia’s work is a belief that the right to self-express is one of the most basic human rights. Her research and integrative approach to the healing power of Intentional Creativity dives into the exploration of the right/left brain connection with the innate wisdom of the heart, the knowings of the body, and interaction with and awareness of the field. She works with a philosophy of connection centered around the red thread, a talisman which offers the teaching that we are all already connected, and that each one of us has a unique piece of the red thread to add to the weave.
Having been trained by her mother, Caron McCloud, the poet, and Sue Hoya Sellars, the painter, she brought her gifts of language and image into form. To her students, she offers the gift of a creative matriarchal lineage that brings with it a continued legacy of art culture, practice, process, and teachings. To honor this matriarchal lineage and be of service to her 10,000+ member community, she and her husband Jonathan McCloud, co-founded MUSEA : Center for Intentional Creativity®, of which Shiloh Sophia is the Curator for a visionary art permanent collection, as well as shows from emerging artists throughout the world through MUSEA’s physical and virtual museum. They provide education in their global online classroom as well as at their campus in Sonoma County, which features student housing, a wine bar called Musette, a vineyard, and a small farm.

"Shiloh Sophia is the real deal. She shows up as herself. She boldly claims her truth. Her teaching is wildly transformational. I'm blown away by how she gifts the world with her feminine wisdom, her process of Intentional Creativity and then, empowers others to take what she has given and share it with the world. Shiloh has stretched me over and over to keep questioning, go further and dig deeper. She gives structure and frees beyond the structure. She guides with compassion, care, and radical grace, a beautiful way to be led. My gratitude runs deep for the gift of Shiloh! She has given me the tools to recover my voice, claim myself as an artist, and honor the feminine on my daily path. Because of her, creativity and sacred vision are threaded through all!"
