Drawing people from around the world just became easier for kids thanks to World Colors skin tone pencils. Here’s a demo of these new colored pencils for children plus a FREE PRINTABLE for drawing faces, facial expressions, & people in general!

Updated October 2023

You know how when you were a kid and you had to choose between the standard issue yellow and white and brown and pink for skin tone when drawing people? And it was never quite the right color, but it was what it was, so you just went with it?

Well, no longer, my friends. No longer.

The World Colors set of Colored EcoPencils by Faber-Castell is awesome. It includes a rainbow of colors but it also includes 6 different skin tones (as 3 double-sided pencils) that can be layered and combined for a multitude of different skin colors. So basically, no matter your skin tone or the skin tones of the people you’re drawing, they have you covered.

There are so many combinations and possibilities!

This post is sponsored by Faber-Castell and I received their World Colors colored pencils for free in order to review and write about them.

First, here’s a video demonstration of the colored pencils in action with our FREE Draw the Faces printable

You can download the FREE printable drawing prompt by scrolling to the bottom of the page. (If you missed it, clear your cookies and refresh this page!)

Drawing People Printable

The faces are blank because we like to offer them as “invitations to draw” that allow your kids to get creative and add their own details and facial expressions. Every kid will use it differently each time so you can come back to this drawing prompt again and again.

You can even print the blank faces out on sticker paper, as we did this time, and turn them into sticker drawing prompts!

Simply press the DIY sticker faces to paper and then draw the people’s bodies and clothing. (Or, if you printed this on regular paper, you could glue the cut-out faces to your paper.)

So pick up a set of World Colors colored pencils by Faber-Castell, print out a few copies of the Draw the Faces printable, and draw people in all the colors of the world!
