Frances Samarripa

Owner and Lead Teacher

Frances Samarripa founded Line+Form Atelier in the summer of 2016. She is an art therapy student with a passion for paint and mixed media. The vision for Line+Form Atelier came to Fran after she spent a year volunteering art services to children residing with their families in a homeless shelter on the near west side. Fran was so inspired by the children she worked with, and she realized there was a lack of process-art experiences available to the residents of Indianapolis. Her intention in creating Line+Form is to help fill that need within the community. In the past three years Line+Form has exceeded her expectations and continues to evolve to fit the needs of the community it serves.

Hobbies: Traveling, spending time with her daughter and family, enjoying all of the exciting new spots in Indy!

Favorite Indy Restaurants: Bluebeard and La Parada

Favorite Thing About Indy: How much it continues to grow and evolve! I absolutely love living downtown. The city is so walkable and there is always something fun going on. Mass Ave and Fountain Square are my favorite spots.
