Looking back at Hugo’s Summer Schools of 2019


The Masterclasses in Suffolk and Dorset this summer had a full turn out of inspired students and many excellent painting opportunities.

Both groups of students created a great feeling of camaraderie amongst themselves which along with the delicious food, provided a thriving environment of growth and discovery.

The beautiful environs of both Berghersh Place in Suffolk and Milton Mill in Dorset were in full bloom and offered up a myriad of colours and forms, there were also excursions for ‘en plein air’ painting to the coast at Charmouth in Dorset and Felixstowe in Suffolk. We thought a photo essay might share the experience best;
