Community-based art education approach is introduced based on considering the importance of art education and aimed to establish a closer communication between society, culture and education. Therefore, the aim of the present study is to explain the placement of the community-based art education in the first phase of secondary education art curriculum. To achieve this aim, first the components of community-based art education approach have been explained. Then the art textbooks in the first phase of secondary education in the academic year 2017- 2018 have been analyzed based on those components. This study is a descriptive-applied research and quantitative and quantitative content analysis method has been conducted. The finding showed that out of 1523 cases of counting units, a total of 369 are related to this approach, of which the most emphasized is on the component of "Attention to differences in ethnic arts" (12.67%) and then "Introducing the arts of native / regional cultures" (8.33%). Two other components, "Interfering native / regional arts as educational experiences" (2.95%) and "Using the capacities of environmental education arts educational media" (0.26%), have not a noteworthy placement in these books. This research shows that although community-based art education approach in the curriculum in Iran is very much emphasized in theory, we have seen less of its effects in the content of the art curriculum in practice.
