About the Program

Heaven on Earth 2015, is an extraordinary hands on, destination art workshop in Todos Santos, Baja Mexico. This year’s workshop will be from December 29, 2014- Jan 2, 2015. Our schedule this year is to accommodate teachers that need to get back to their class rooms In January.  Our Todos Artes compound will come alive with two and three dimensional printing techniques using clay in an array of unique and creative techniques. Heaven on Earth 2015, Dream Team artists are Jos Sances, Pamela Stefl Toki, and Donna Billick. There is a gourmet lunch provided by world famous chef Iker of Browns Café. The cost of the week instruction, all materials and lunch is $800 US dollars. Send your deposit of $200 dollars to Donna Billick at 35301 Rd 31 Davis California, 95616 to reserve your place; this is a very booked workshop.  There is lots of information about where to stay in the area at donnabillickart.com website, press the Todos Artes circle and explore past Heaven on Earth workshops, there is a movie at vimeo.com/38655199, Aztec Calendar 2012.  In addition there is an online magazine, Journeldelpacifico.com with maps and services available in Todos Santos, Pueblo Magico of Baja. I can recommend for those interested in a cheap and clean hotel for the week to look into Hotel Gularate or Casita Maria in my neighborhood, no reservation needed.  There are higher end casitas listed in my website.  The airport you would fly into is San Jose Del Cabo, one hour south of Todos Santos. It is a good idea to book flights as early as possible for a good deal.   There is a great new shuttle at Ecobajatours.com, that will pick you up at the airport and take you to Todos Santos In comfort, make a reservation before you make the flight to insure a seat. Heaven on Earth is located very central I town, close to all of the downtown restaurants and shops, one block from historic Hotel California.

Jos Sances, of Alliance Printing in Berkley, will be demonstrating screen printing and slip decals on clay. You will participate with Jos in creating tiles and ceramic plates, in addition to a special Jan 1, New Year’s community build project called the “Tortilla Conspiracy”. The “Tortilla Conspiracy” is a screen printing onto fresh tortillas to be consumed in a taco fashion, fun and filling. To view more of Jos’s work go to his web site at josart.net.

Pam Stefl Toki, is going to inspire us with a totally unique monoprinting on clay technique created by Mitch Lyons. Pam will demonstrate and assist you in using clay and mason stains to develop beautiful, permanent works of art that you will be able to transport home. This is going to inspire you beyond words. To view more of this amazing mono printing on clay technique visit Pam’s web site at pamelastefl.com or Mitch Lyons site.

Donna Billick is owner and director of Todos Artes, home of the Heaven on Earth compound, where there are studios and kilns to accommodate this amazing destination workshop. Donna will work with plaster slabs to carve into for a block print, or linoleum master slab that will be used with clay to pull ceramic flat and dimensional artworks. The clay prints will be fired in the kilns at the Todos Artes facility.  The idea is to bring three different artists and unique methods of using clay to make multiples. I am very excited to offer this Heaven on Earth 2015 workshop that will inspire and bring skills never offered together in one workshop, make your plans and come to Heaven on Earth ready to rock. I can be contacted at rockartus@aol.com or by phone at 530-219-5918.

Your heavenly host, Donna Billick
