Real Life Art

OK all of you brilliant, creative, intelligent, ingenious art teachers,
I have a scenario and a question,
Suppose you have a hypothetical class of students that are extremely
academically challenged, few will go to vocational school, and fewer will go
to college, if they graduate. If they come to school (some come only because
of court order), they are hostile and violent. They reject learning and don't
like to come to any classes, even art. Most think art is stupid, feminine
(?), and does not relate to their lives.
What kind of art lessons would you teach to help them realize that art is
relevant to their lives and future? (Other than how to design tattoos! LOL)
