Art

Styles of art in ancient Greece were, painting, writing, pottery, architecture, and sculpting. This art affected Greece because artists would model their art after things they would want to see in their society. Art also affected Greece because they could make pillars, cups, vases, and other useful products instead of buying them from another country, also because of this they could sell the art for more money. Greece was able to spread their ideas outside of Greece during the Hellenistic era. They were able to do this when Alexander the great lead his army through Southwest Asia, and northern Africa spreading Greece's art, ideas, language, and architecture wherever they went. Infact, Hellenistic, means "like the Greeks"

Class divisons

The idea of Greek citizenship was that citizens could vote and way in on different laws and help to shape their country. You could become a citizen by being a free, native-born man who owned land in Greece. A citizen's rights were, being able to choose officials and pass laws with the right to vote. They could also hold office, own property, and defend themselves in court. This way of citizenship was different from other ancient civilizations because they were known as subjects and had no say in the government they also had no rights and were forced to obey the ruler.

Geography

The Geography of Greece was extremely important for it's settlement because the mainland of Greece was a peninsula. This was important because it helped the citizens become sailors and well profited traders. In addition to the water, Greece also had very good farmland because of fertile soil in the land. The geography also made an impact on the cities. The cities could be very independent because of the mountains and rivers surrounding most cities and towns, which helped to keep them from attackers, similar to ancient Egypt.
