Tablet art tutorial videos?

A young relative of mine is receiving a Wacom tablet for Christmas. It's overkill, but I got a good price, so they're receiving the Intuos 4.
I'd love to be able to point them to video tutorials that demonstrate basic drawing skills and techniques using a tablet and photoshop elements. I saw several previous threads about this topic where people essentially said, "Take a few years and sketch/paint the traditional way." That response won't be helpful here.
There are basic ideas about how and when to use layers, and how and when to change brushes/brush size, that I think they wouldn't notice on their own for a long, long time. Ditto for efficient use of the buttons on the tablet.
So the goal is to find videos that:
1. Expose tablet features and concepts and/or
2. Utilize a tablet in demonstrating fundamental, basic drawing/painting techniques that would apply just as well to analog art
Bob Ross style "paint along" videos for tablets and middle to high-school aged kids would also be welcome.
