Problem Children is a summer residency program run by Problem Library that provides a support structure to develop bright young artists in the San Francisco bay area.


Now in its second year, the program focuses on building agency, critical and practical skills, and an exploration of the self, with a pedagogical approach that reacts to student interests, needs, and goals, providing a responsive platform for growth rather than a rigid learning structure.

With a 1:1 ratio of students to mentors, the program facilitates cross-generational engagement that provides rich interaction and exploration. The program exposes students to the local art community through its mentors, field trips and visiting artist lectures, fostering real world connections.
