The World Colors Collection
Join Faber-Castell in celebrating equality and cultural diversity with our World Colors Collection. Rooted in Germany and represented in over 120 countries, Faber-Castell is a global brand striving to provide complete inclusivity to children and creatives of all ethnicities.
The representation of all nations through artistic media is a concept that is long overdue. Encouraging all children to lead their lives with self-expression becomes a full reality with World Colors. Incorporating six blendable skin tones with a traditional color set, Faber-Castell is the first company to normalize the normal. When a child sets out to create an image portraying his or her family, friends, heroes, or an image of themselves, the World Colors Collection makes it possible to match the skin tone shade they desire. World Colors is now available in Colored EcoPencils, a How to Draw Faces art kit, Modeling Clay, and Beeswax Crayons.
48% of kids and young adults identify themselves as a person of color. It is estimated that by 2060, 63% of children under 18 will self-identify as a person of color. With diversity on the rise, there is an overwhelming need for proper representation in the art world and in the classroom. World Colors was developed with the expertise of makeup artists, ensuring quality shades that seamlessly blend to create any desired skin shade.
World Colors How to Draw Faces art kit takes our 15 count World Colors colored pencils and includes them in a set accompanied by a mirror with easel, 10 tracing pages, 5 coloring pages, 5 drawing pages, a white eraser, pencil sharpener, skin tone color wheel, and an instructions pamphlet to teach children the art of self-portraits
Super smooth and pigment packed, World Colors brings our inclusive initiative to our popular Beeswax Crayons. This crayon set features 9 traditional crayon colors and 6 blendable skin tone colored crayons, perfect for creating personalized portraits and illustrations. We create our Beeswax Crayons in a triangular shape allowing young artists to learn proper grip and prevent hand fatigue. The beeswax in our crayons is harvested sustainably and the hive and bees are left unharmed. World Colors Beeswax Crayons are easy to blend, allowing children to create a world of skin tones and properly express themselves.
Representation does not have to end with coloring art materials, World Colors Modeling Clay comes with 9 vibrant colors, 6 blendable skin tone colors, and 3 clay modeling tools. This soft non-drying modeling clay set includes everything you need to create diverse clay figurines. Children can confidently express themselves while engaging in sensory play. Squish, build, roll, and mix for hours of clay play fun with World Colors Modeling Clay.
All children deserve art materials that support their individuality and self-esteem. World Colors offers this to kids and helps them celebrate and embrace creativity and self-expression.
