This study aimed to determine the degree of inclusion in textbooks of art education to higher basic stage in Jordan for Islamic arts, and to investigate the problems faced by teachers of arts education in the implementation of the curriculum. A content-analysis list and a questionnaire were developed. Textbooks of Arts Education were analysed, and the questionnaire was addressed to 120 techers of Art education in the capital of Amman. The results of the study showed that some of the contents of Islamic arts were not included in any of the textbooks, while the ninth gradetextbook has the greater percentage of the inclusion of the areas of Islamic art. The results also indicated a number of problems faced by teachers of art education in the implementation of the curriculum: the highest is the weakness of specialized training programs to develop teachers in art education, the teaching of the subject by material by non-specialised teachers, the high number of students per class, the reluctance to accept students for the education course as a curricular course, the lack of motivation of parents to encourage students to bring items of art education, and inadequate tools and competence available in the workshop, in addition to the lack of computers in proportion to the number of students in the school.
