Listen up, art-lovers and art-wanters! It’s time to start thinking about getting into the game – of collecting, that is. With stuffy galleries, seasoned art collectors, and tricky lingo, the whole thing can seem a bit, well, scary. But needn't fret. This edition of Hox How To is all about wiping away the intimidation. We've teamed up with the Young Collectors Circle and some of our favourite art people who'll take you through the ins and outs of starting your own collection, developing your own taste, and having a bit of fun with it.
