    That's a lot... maybe you should divide it up and ask in separate questions so its not so overwhelming?

    but at any rate, I'll help you as much as I can. - Classical sculpture is much bigger that archaic sculpture. - Both were influenced by Greek cultures. (as in the greek gods and such) - I have no idea about aesthetic characteristics and executions... sorry - Poses: Classical sculptured tend to have their arms out in a grand gesture, with their legs apart in a supported posture, while archaic sculpture was more straight with legs together and arms down. .... that's about all I can help you with hope it helps some :D

    For the aesthetics, you can include the skin tight drapery(the folds in the clothing) were more realistic in classical than in archaic. The bodies on classical sculptures had much more defined muscle(showed specific muscles). Also hair changed alot, In archaic it usually only had simple engraved lines to represent hair, but classical sculpture has deeper definiton as in the hair is more detailed. Also, archaic sculptures had what was called the "archaic Smile", the sculptures in the archaic era thought that by putting a smile on all the sculptures they would seem more human and realistic, so they put the smile whether the scultpure was of a simple kouros(boy sculpture) or a dieing warrior. For pose, the major difference is that the classical sculpture had contraposto(it looks like they are leaning to one side) while the archaic were straight and stiff like egyptian art.

    For media they were all made of marble, but archaic sometimes used normal limestone. Also there is evidence that classical sculptures were painted with bright colors.

    it's probably too late but for starters, the only facial expression archaic sculptors seemed to know how to use was the creepy archaic smile classical greek art was characterized by idealism and contrapposto
