DOWNTOWN BROOKLYN - A unique art show in Downtown Brooklyn is showcasing the work of kids who have been in trouble for graffiti offenses.

The first-ever "Paint Straight" art show, which is sponsored by the city's Department of Probation, aims to give kids a better outlet to express their creativity.

"My art is mysterious and provocative, so you'll always be wanting more," says 14-year-old Tionna McCowen, who was caught "tagging" by police. "I use a lot of different things - it's like a TV show that sits still."
