    Real beginners need to have an understanding of the basic tools, how to setup a file (including resolution settings vs. physical dimensions and print vs. web images), the use of different file types (for example, why not to edit .jpg files), how to do save and save as, and using layers.

    How to use cropping to compose an image, not really a photoshop skill but a basic skill any designer should have.

  • A design workshop should be about design, not about using the tools.

    Line

    Shape

    Direction

    Size

    Texture

    Color

    Value

    Balance

    Repetition

    Contrast

    Harmony

    Unity

    Etc., etc., etc.
