ACADEMY is an inftitution for the readier in-
ftruclion of ftudents in the principles of the va-
rious branches of Art. This feerns to have been its ori-
ginal defignation ; but as many of the principles of art
require the elucidation of a liberal mind, and extenfive
knowledge, it became neceffary that thefe fhould be
communicated by proficients in technical fiudies. Hence
an academy is now a confiderable inftitution ; and mould
comprize, (i.) a number of teachers, each excellent in
his department, whofe leffons may direct the ftudent ;
and (2.) conveniencies for accommodating the ftudies
of thofe who are defirous of applying to praclife the
leffons taught.

fome of the fecond rate) have now academies ; at Rome,
almoft each nation has its appropriate academy,
