Drawing Inspiration from Nature with Louis Henry Mitchell - Artist-in Residence

Louis Henry Mitchell, Creative Director of Character Design at Sesame Workshop, has been exploring the world since he was 17 and recording his findings through his drawings. After joining us in March 2022 as our Artist-in-Residence in the Galápagos, Mitchell's drawings “exploded” with inspiration from the region’s vibrant wildlife, including a memorable encounter with a giant tortoise.

Discover New Zealand from the North Island to its most remote islands in the Southern Ocean. Explore natural wonders like Abel Tasman National Park and Milford Sound, and visit towns that tell the country’s story. Admire the Art Deco architecture of Napier, and get acquainted with Māori culture in Gisborne. Cap off the experience amid penguins and sea lions in New Zealand’s seldom-visited subantarctic islands, designated a UNESCO World Heritage site.
