About the Modern Storybook Script Workshop

with Kathy Milici

This playful alphabet has FUN written all over it! Kathy’s charming, casual, easy script gives a fresh, modern twist to the traditional alphabet.

Youre-Invited-to-Kathy-Milici-Storybook-Script

In this 4-session online workshop, you'll learn...

...a series of simple strokes that form this whimsical yet elegant alphabet; first lowercase letters, then upper case capitals.

We’ll also examine letter endings, connectors, ligatures, numbers and punctuation.

Strokes into letters, letters to words, words to sentences…and voila! You have a brand new, useful and versatile alphabet style that you’ll make uniquely your own!

Class recordings will be available to view for 30 days after the last day of class.

Student Experience

Beginners to Advanced calligraphers are welcome!

Never picked up a pointed pen before? We’ve got your back! We will provide introductory videos in the student portal for you to watch before class starts so that you will be all set to start writing.

Kathy’s teaching style has been described as thoughtful, intelligent, detailed, entertaining, and joyful! She believes in the healing power of creating art.
